I got the raised bed all ready back in March. I put the planks in so I could walk into the garden.
I put out the broccoli, spinach, and lettuce around mid-April. I also put out the tomatoes and ground cherries. We had one frost after that, so I had to use a floating row cover one night!
After some yellow leaves (and still some every now and then), the veggies are growing just fine!
