Thoughts on raised beds?
The heat and drought of the last couple of summers has made me re-think how I garden. I have raised beds and love them - however, I am starting to wonder if they are the best method for our hot, dry summers. Raised beds warm up faster and drain better - but do those things work against us in our climate? Would double digging the soil and planting at ground level work better? Or are raised beds, combined with drip irrigation and mulching, still the best way to go?
What do you all think?
