  1. LOVE raised beds! I went to raised beds last year and holy cow did I quadruple my produce! Over 50 ears of corn! Amazing. I canned so many tomatoes I was sick of looking at them! And you can get so much with just 1 bed even. I had 17 so I had alot :) Can’t wait until it warms up here to start digging in the dirt getting it ready for planting! A few more months…..
