DH built three raised beds for me to grow vegetables for the family. The boxes are 4 x 8, made with corner brackets from Lee Valley. We filled them with bags of black earth, composted manure, and triple mix. We grew tomatoes (huge crop!), garlic, snow peas, carrots, beans (yellow and green), beets, chard, spinach, lettuce, radishes, parsley and sage.
enough to enjoy, and enough tomatoes for salsa and soup! Very satisfying for me, both as a gardener and a cook!

Those are amazing. I wish I had such skill at building beds like this, and raising veggies like this! Do you can or freeze or preserve any of the veggies for winter use?

Those look great! I thought about raised beds, particularly since my garden spot is rather low and gets flooded every now and then. But, I thought it would be difficult to get a tiller in there. If I had the space, I would do like I saw one time --- leave the grass, but till up rows about 2-3 feet wide to plant in. Then you can kneel on the grass to weed the vegies.
