Raised Bed Gardening in My Vegetable Greenhouse

Delicious homegrown lettuces and herbs are growing beautifully inside my vegetable greenhouse and will be ready just in time for Easter.

Not long ago, we constructed 16 wooden garden boxes to fit the entire length and width of my vegetable greenhouse. Raised bed gardening allows good drainage, prevents soil compaction, and provides protection for those plants that may otherwise get trampled. Once the boxes were complete, they were filled with soil mixed right here at my Bedford, New York farm, and planted with a selection of vegetables that were started from seed earlier in the year. Planting in the vegetable greenhouse is a great way to ensure I have fresh, organic vegetables all year long. 

Here are some photos.
