Our raised row, no till and low maintenance beds provide us with thousands of pounds of vegetables each year, and keep us in fresh and canned food year round. Through each of the four parts –  we take you through the process of how we plan, plant, care and maintain our raised row garden beds – and how to create your own simple garden in your yard.

1. Growing Simple With Raised Rows, No-Till Beds 

2. Preparing And Planting The Raised Row Garden

3. Maintaining The Garden Through The Season

4. Keeping Your Beds Productive  

The pictures below are all from our garden the last two years.  It measures just 40 x 60′. but yields over 3000 pounds of vegetables a year for us. In general, we spend less than 10 minutes a day working in it through the spring and summer months.

So maybe we planted a few too many peppers in the garden plan this year!

  1. I’ve completed my first season as a raised row gardener.Started modestly with 4-12′ x 18″ rows, with good success. Now that the season is done, what should I do with the beds next year? add more mulched leaves, top soil,straw? or just leave them alone?

  2. I have been meaning to update you on my raised bed garden here in Texas. While the garden has grown splendidly, I had to clean out the row spaces between due to snakes. It seems they also enjoyed the bed of soft, lush, leaves & hay. We are finally reaping the rewards and I’m putting up my very first batch of pickles today. So excited & nervous at the same time. Keep up the great work on this page… just so you know, your information realy helps!
