This is a journal of my home vegetable garden. Skippy and Suzie think it's their garden, but I do all the work. We're located near Boston (USDA zone 6A). I have a community garden plot and a garden in my backyard. I try to grow all of my family's vegetables using sustainable organic methods.

the raised bed movie!

Here's another movie of my garden: Time lapse video of raised bed construction. Funny to see us running around and making 8 raised beds in 2 minutes....

It's like watching the vintage silent movie except yours is color-:)

How long do the untreated pine frames last? Do they rot after a few years? I have concrete blocks raised bed now, but I am thiking to change to wood frame. If the pine can last 10 + years, I may go with it instead of cedar.

Fun! I love how your dogs 'supervise' the process.

I have untreated pine raised beds at my community plot that we built in 2009. Most are holding up still this year. But one edge of a couple beds are in need of rebuilding. So that's 5 years. I'd say 5-7 years seems to be the life of untreated raised pine beds.
