I have severe arthritis, so I am unable to get down and dirty any more. I have 5 gardens that I made out of 2x4's, they are all 4 feet wide and about 24 inches high. I can sit on the side and play in the dirt, and I plant a lot of things in 5 gallon pails.

My gardens started out innocently enough, I built a compost bin out of 2x4's, I filled it with leaves, a layer of dirt, kitchen waste, more leaves, dirt etc. I topped it up with dirt and then thought, "I should plant something" so I planted cucumbers. But then I didn't have a compost bin, so I built another 4 feet away from the first. The next spring I joined the 2 together, making a garden 4 feet wide by 12 feet long, and high enough I could sit on the edge. But then I didn't have a compost bin! I think you can guess the rest of the story. LOL

I live in: Canada

My zone is: 4a Northern Ont
