Hope you all had a Great Valentines Day yesterday.
Himself and I are wanting to start a raised bed vegetable garden with a drip irrigation watering system here in zone 9b
(Zip Code 85354) We are going to use cement blocks instead of lumber, partly due to cost of L. and also termites & rabbits!
Also we are planning to put some sort of shade clothe covering up to protect from both the sun and the birds .. also the rabbits, bless their little rabbit hearts!
We are just starting to build this today/tomorrow ... so I know I am behind the 8 ball to get seeds planted.
We have been looking at different types of planting medium to put in the R. beds and we want to add composted Chicken Manure which we can get from a local chicken ranch that composts, bags & sells.
Can anyone in our area offer any advice? We are open to learning! We have been researching info on the internet like crazy but then remembered I have had a membership to Dave's Garden for several years now & it is rather silly of me not to be using this resource & the advice I can get here.
Are there any other forums I should be reading besides this one?
Any and all help will be appreciated, Thanks ... Autumn16
