The mixture that was placed into it is a lot of organic compost, garden soil, peat moss, and peat hummus. All this first tilled into the sandy spot I chose (our base soil is sand because we live near the lake) in the back yard. Then the raised bed was placed on top. I like this version of a raised bed because the top tiers can be removed if needed. I also need this version to help keep 2 dogs out!
I planted several tomato plant and pepper plants. Hubby bought hot banana pepper plants from Lowe's and I grew the tomatoes and some of the other pepper plants from seed.
Almost time to plant:
Peppers and tomatoes, I hope they like it here:
