Raised bed gardening

By on
I live in zone 8, in WA and decided to use raised beds as my soil was very clay heavy and full of rocks.

I am a first time gardener and spent many hours and days of research about growing and planting a variety of vegetables as well as flowers. I then checked the soil in the 2 beds already set up here. It was extremely leaning to the clay side with so many little rocks.

I found this wood frame in the backyard, I cleared a spot with the most sun and placed it there. I used some pallets on the ends for my vining plants. I had some extra space so I took some old pallet boards and made a few more rows. I filled it with good soil mix and mixed in some Osmocote as well. I will be planting in it soon, we have had much colder weather here so I killed the few plants I have tried to put out there due to cold nights
