    Wonderful kitchen garden, Jill. Love how well the herbs and flowers grow together – inspires me to try to do the same.
    Could you list in your Description (above) everything you name in the video?

    I just love the this! The harvesting, beauty, and sentimental value is priceless! I also love how it was a family project (husband, daughter, and mother-in-law)! Thanks for sharing, Jill!

    I’ve been listening to your podcast, and I just found and subscribed to your channel today! ♥️

    The deeper the bed the higher the water requirements, in Australia with long dry weather this is not the best idea

    I’m curious about your wood selection. I’ve avoided any treated wood. Cedar hasn’t proved much better than untreated pine, especially considering the price. I’m rebuilding some rows now with untreated fir 2x4s, using galvanized tin lining the inside to hopefully extend the life of the wood. Nice work on all of your videos!

    Friends,
    as long as we do not interfere with nature .
    (when we cannot leave the house), I think we can be healthy if we return to nature likewise nature renews itself.
     Especially in winter, I use sage not only as a spice but also as tea.
     When I look at the history, this plant has been used in the treatment of many diseases.
     As the Virgin Mary is mentioned in mythology.

     If you search the internet for ‘Benefits of sage’, you will be very surprised. I wish you all a healthy day.

    I just enjoyed learning about your kitchen garden! This will be a must by next summer for us!

    Very nice! I might steal your design and build one for my wife!!

    What species of wood did y’all use to build the raised bed?

  13. Amanda Kaake on April 20, 2021 at 12:55 am

    For the lavender, it needs a space of its own. Maybe add a little bit of sand in the soil as well and you should be able to grow it well as long as nothing pushes it out.

    sounds like medical advice.. looks like medical advice… tastes like *GACK* ..

    Looks like Salvia to me, not Stevia, but I am not an expert by any means. Absolutely gorgeous raised bed garden. 🥰
