Welcome to new readers who found Soil to Sustenance via my guest post on Robb Wolf’s The Paleo Solution. As I indicated in that post, I am a big fan of raised beds for backyard gardening AND for growing vegetables in a larger farm-scale operation.
Even though they are a pain to create, raised beds have many advantages to simply planting in rows. Given the 2+ inches of rain we received in the past 24 hours, I thought I would show how raised beds can help with drainage. Notice how the standing water has settled in the pathways between beds. This water no longer poses a threat to the roots of the potato plants in these beds, but will still be absorbed into the surrounding soil.
