In this video you will see the waist high raised bed kits that are being used to grow food. The waist height raised beds were chosen because the viewers rent and may decided to move any time, so they can easily take their raised bed kits with them. After watching this video you will know how you can grow if you rent or don’t want to invest in a permanent garden.

  1. Hi Starlight219, I’m not an expert gardener or anything like that, but I do have a container garden. And I must admit, allot of my containers don’t have holes at all! Sounds scary, but unless it rains allot every day, drying out tends to be a bigger problem than drowning in my experience. bUt if it’s still too scary just to wing it holeless,you can always ad a layer of small rock, clay pellets and other stuff for drainage on the bottom ;)

  2. THANK YOU for this video. :) We’re renting, and I want to grow most of our food to cut down on food costs.

  3. Hey yall if yall like gardening and our looking to buy vegetable transplants visit greenbroplants.weebly.com .

  4. John, after seeing this video, I purchased 2 at my local home depot but haven’t planted them out yet as I have a question. The bed when assembled as supplied in the kit has one index finger size hole right in the middle of the center plank. The bottom is 5 tightly fit planks. The kit also contains a liner which is like a thick hefty bag material with 1 hole in middle. New SQFG recommends 1hole/sqft + 1hole/ea corner. What do you and the owners in this video think is best for drainage here?

  5. try looking it up online. only 1 store out of a dozen in San Diego had any in stock and they had 17!

    Always a good topic to see since I’m always looking for more ways to get the best use of space. Just moved into the apartment and have soil that’s more like dust than a good growing medium but letting my worms go to work on it and if it gets grow-able I’ll invite you out.

  7. Nice vid, I also post videos of my home garden on my home channel

    Peace.

  14. Thanks for the vid

  15. Swiss Chard and Spinach are both in the Beet family… plants in the same family don’t typically do well as neighbors. There are exceptions (tomatoes and peppers, for example), but I wouldn’t plant Chard and Spinach together.

  16. nice video thanks this will be awsome for my ny backyard

  17. i appreciated your extra commentary on pest control. it cracked me up when you made that caterpillar “disappear”

  18. Great Video John, This year the flea beetles destroyed all my Russian kale. Do you know a way to control them?
    Thanks

  19. That little bugger, also loves eating cabbage.

  20. Hey hey another good one Thanks John

  21. You can always make them deeper and most things WILL grow in 6-8 inch depths. You may want something deeper for tomatoes and longer carrots.

  22. Clever idea! Thanks!

  23. My grandparents used plastic forks to keep out the cats. Plant the forks points up. They jump in, get a poke and jump right out never to return. No animals are harmed. Just ticked off.
