No, I made a mistake and put landscape cloth underneath. Preventing weeds and roots from growing into the beds was my first thought. It looks like I might have to do some digging. emoticon

Hi and welcome! It sounds like you're working on taking care of your body as well as you do your veg patch -- and it sounds VERY well-worked.

my SparkPage is friends-only because I'm paranoid and boring, anyway

Hi RK welcome to the team.
Did you loosen up the soil at the bottome of the bed before you put the soil in your raised bed? If that soil has poor drainage that may be the problem.

You can do this! I look forward to hearing how you get that garden in order.

Welcome to the forum!

I have seen women looking at jewelry ads with a misty eye and one hand resting on the heart, and I only know what they're feeling because that's how I read the seed catalogs in January.

I am from Victorville California (High Desert) I've built a beautiful raised bed vegetable garden out of cinder block each bed is 16" deep. I've built my own soil 95 % organic peat moss, organic mulch, vermiculite and 5% garden soil. It has a drip system and I usually water by hand. I get some of the worse production compared to using native clay, sand, and 30% organic. I've been analysing the problem and realize I may need better drainage because the top 4 inches dry out but the bottom is like a sponge. It has been a headache due to cost and labor and yet we do not get an abundance of produce. I decided that I will test the PH and add sand to promote drainage. emoticon

I've recently started walking and I walk 2 miles a day four times a week. I started walking to the end of the block three Weeks+ ago. I track everything I eat and enter foods before I eat. I plan on taking a Tai Chi class on saturdays. Tomorrow I start. I feel all sorts of aches and pains and know my body is alive under all this fat.
