I’ve tried lettuce before but it seems to get burnt by the sun. Jackson thought the rabbits needed some lettuce so he decided to help. We built this raised bed. I don’t like to buy plants or dirt from big stores but Walmart had topsoil for 1$ per 40 pounds and potting soil for 2$ a 40 pound bag. I noticed the top soil was very sandy. Seems that after having it for a few days it dries out quick. looks like ill be watering every day. On a side note I was at lowes the other day and they had heirloom tomato plants. They were a little pricey at $3.50 each. Ill keep some seeds and see if i can recoup the cost next spring.
I got some free railroad ties. Trip and I loaded to tractor and went to pick them up. These are massive. 12″x14″x12′ or so is the size. massivly heavy and to bulky to use as raised beds. Ill get a picture of what im building.
