I like to wet it down with the hose also…. After I plant, I also add natural UN dyed wood chip mulch on top!!! Looks nice, Keeps weeding down and keeps the plant roots cool and moist…. Wishing you a Bountiful Harvest!!! I see some comments are from , so I apologize if this is such a late reply. But I have a question. I see that you said that the cinder blocks are harmful, or something of that sort. So did you line each cinder block hole sides with cardboard?
Or would you recommend planting something other than lettus in each individual hole? I lined the whole middle part of the cinder block garden with cardboard boxes and I planted flowers in the holes.
I saw your comment about using Sevin dust to get rid of caterpillars. I learned from an old gardener to dust the plants with a self rising flour to kill them.
It rises inside them and kills them. Point of contention with the idea.. Cinder blocks are heavy.. Again, being able to get even a couple of dozen bricks home requires a trailer and some lifting..
Other than pointing out the obvious.. I think the idea is awesome.. Just a couple of tips. Cardboard degrades in time and not a long time fix, shade cloth would last longer. My tomato plants were bombarded with the moth hawk caterpillars, I quickly hand picked those various eaters, throwing them on my dirt parking area where the birds were happily consuming them. Yes, put them out where the birds can eat them, thinking at the time, what a great exchange.
I suggest never using chemicals in your garden, there are alternatives in your house that work just as well. Place hornworms in a sock or stocking leg. Place sock in watering can.
Smoosh contents of sock. Let stand for an hour or two. Besides deterring the caterpillars, the birds stay hungry enough to hunt the bugs you might miss. I think they just crush those and recycle them anyway, but they are one solid piece of cardboard. We have a super hard time with long grass runners growing through garden bed fabric around here and boy are they persistent. I live in a duplex with no yard. Should I maybe make it higher for a deeper garden?
Hmmm… this is a tough one. Anyone else have any ideas for cement patios? The cinder blocks will have cracks where they abut. These cracks should be plenty to allow for drainage. Yep, definitely a container garden! They can also be so beautiful that no city-folks will complain! How about some flowerpots, the long rectangle ones. Or even regular flowerpots. They did really well. I use the big plastic clear bins as big pots instead of a raised garden. Just drill some holes on the bottom to allow water to drain out.
Works well and just saw something about using the fibers inside of a diaper to mix with the soil so that it holds more water. My yard was full of trees.. I have had raised beds on my asphalt driveway for 14 years. I used landscape fabric under the dirt to help keep the dirt from washing away. I would think the cement will clean up fine!!! I hear Coke a Cola works well on car fluid stained drives!!! Last year was a first for me planting vegetables.
Did not have a garden, so I did my garden in planters! Just several pots with the plants I wanted, from beans to tomatoes to zucchini. Also lettuce and cucumbers. We are doing a raised bed this year, but I am still using my pots for my tomatoes! For years, out here in the sticks of Wyoming people have recycled old tires, stacked to whatever depth you need to grow tomatoes, potatoes and anything that has a deep root system.
It works great for hills of potatoes. If you don;t like the black of the tires you can spray paint them with different colors to liven up the look! I saw a fellow and his wife who stacked the tires to a depth of 5 feet or so, filling the interior space as they went, then drilling holes into the stack all around the tires and then planted tomatoes and even strawberries.
The result was amazing! I think you could even stack the same sizes of old bicycle tires for a bit more interior room. Just fill the inside with your favorite potting soil and there you go. One could even stack several tires high and, if you have a drainage problem or need extra drainage for some reason, you could put down a layer of rocks to your desired depth, add sand and then add the potting soil or whatever you want to use for your soil. You can do a search on it…. Just beware of pesky Trees!!!
I have a tree in my yard that keeps sending roots over to my garden beds….. I used the weed fabric and it caused fungus and mold to the roots and everything died after growing great till the roots hit the fabric.
I myself will just let the bed drain naturally from now on. I love you website I have been looking for an idea about raised bed gardening now I finally found you thanks so much.
We are planning one of these for next year. I was wondering if you have trouble when you have a big rain with water pooling in garden or blocks. And if you do, what steps you take to control it. I was so thrilled to find your site and the raised cinder block beds. Then we spent every night in an Epson Salt bath and then slathering each others backs and arms with Tiger Balm.
Talk about back breaking work! We will be putting another garden, in another location, next year and all of our beds will be made out of cinder blocks. The cardboard in the bottom of the bed is a great idea. I wonder if it would keep out the Mountain Misery that we had in ours.
It came up from below the bed. We also have a problem with moles, voles and gophers, so we always lay down hardware cloth under our beds. No more problems with those critters. Now instead of digging out, we can just remove the cinder blocks at the end of the season and scoop the dirt into our sifter and yard cart to mix with steer manure and replant. We have also placed a row of cinder blocks around our chicken coop, and planted grape vines in several of the holes.
They will grow up and over the coop providing an extra treat for the chicken and shade in our hot summers.
You are very welcome! I wished I could see photos of all of your work. I just found you as well, Jennifer. Thought I would mention that I also have cinder blocks laid out like this outside my chicken coop. I have it separated down the middle and use it to compost the chicken manure.
One section is for the older litter that is ready to be put on the garden and of course the other is for the newer. Just made it this season and am liking the convenience of a close spot to dump the manure. I am doing a cinder block raised bed around my patio extension. This is so my dogs can stop trying to dig up my garden, and my 2 sons can help plant. I have three areas mapped for them. If so, what kind of paint should I use? I wanted to paint them dark and stencil on the outside.
I am building my first raised garden. To keep weeds and stuff out? I would use a weed blocker or boxes. I have used several sheets of newspaper randomly overlapping the edges with success when planting marigolds.
No weeds, great drainage, and no cost! Perennials can not reseed, but it beats weeding. I have been using this method for years for an herb garden.

We have to separate weight loss and exercise. Hi m a bit worried as I lost 15 kg but didn't loose any inches. I look da same as before. My weight wz kg n now it is Hi Adrian, I'm running a marathon, but found that I'm gaining weight. I'm 5'5 and weigh pds. My ideal weight is I run about 5 times a week for about an hour to two hours. Muscles are heavier than fat, it is normal that you are gaining weight. Unless you eat fatty foods and see your belly getting Jelly A scale wont always tell you whats happening with your body.
If for example you gained a grams of muscle but lost grams of fat this would transalte as an increase of weight according to your scales. The simple fact is adding muscle mass means you wil hurn more calories simply because even a muscle at rest will require more calories to exist than stored body fat does. Each sex male and female can only gain muscle mass according to the biochemical and endocrine stasis our individual gender allows. Women simply wont grow a mans muscle mass without first acquiring his endocrine profile, just as a man cannot develop female characteristics without a deviation of masculine endocrine ratio to feminine.
Just read an article at tltopmarkets. I read online that you can loose up to pounds in 5 days by drinking like a gallon or 2 gallons of water a day, no salt, sugar or starches and to use the sauna.

I weigh at right now and feel embarrassed to even take my coat off during school.

In your blood stream to become diluted which is dangerous. Low levels of these electrolyles can cause potentially fatal heart problems, muscle spasms, and other problems that can be very dangerous very quickly.
