Patricia, do have any videos on your raised beds?  Any tips?  I like the looks.  Is it hard to replace soil as its fertility diminishes?

I just love your garden Patricia and have been looking for the video that shows how you planned and built it.
Any help finding it would be appreciated.

Mitch, Glad you like the raised beds! Tricia does not replace the soil but uses cover crops in the fall, and fertilizer during the growing season. If you have compacted soil then Daikon Radish would be a clod-busting cover crop to try.

Happy to know you enjoy Tricia’s garden! We don’t have any raised beds plans available right now, but will have them in the future. Tricia talks about the history of her garden in her lectures at events. Perhaps someday we’ll film her doing that?

Thank you so much for this video - we live in southern Maine and have cold winters.  I’ve been hesitant to plant onions in the fall thinking they would not survive the cold temps.  We’ll give it a try this year!  Happy gardening!
