In previous years we've either grown exclusively in the ground or in raised beds. Never both. Until this year. We have three large beds that measure 4 x 16, and one small bed that measures 4 x 4, plus a very large garden in the ground. Now my sweet husband has built me raised boxes on three sides of the chicken run. We've also planted blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, and grapes. I love knowing exactly where our food is coming from!
