I love having a vegetable garden. The thrill of seeing it grow, the pleasure of harvesting and eating healthy, pesticide free produce that you have grown yourself, well, there is nothing like it. Unfortunately, as the years go by, I am having a harder and harder time stooping over or kneeling to tend my garden. Getting older is no fun!
Anyway, one day I was shopping around in Amazon, and I saw a wood elevated garden bed, up on legs, a bit lower than kitchen counter height. My mouth just dropped open! Such as simple idea, why hadn't I thought of it? It was perfect and my mind immediately started buzzing as to where I could put them, how I could provide drainage, what I would plant........I was excited! I can hardly wait for spring!!

These sure look like a great gardening alternative to me! As I've gotten older, my knees just don't want to work as well as they did in years past. One of these raised garden beds would be just the ticket.
Some of these raised beds are quite lovely. I have terrible soil in my area of New Jersey in the States, and a back problem. So my husband fills large pots with good soil, so it's easier for me to enjoy gardening. It looks so pretty too, because you can be creative with the containers. I also like the greenhouses. I may have to leave some pictures around the house, maybe someone will get the hint and buy me one for a special occasion :).
What a marvelous idea! Thanks for sharing!
Plus, the photos are really nice! Thumbs up!
These are gorgeous.
