This is the kind of gardens we have. We have four of them. NO bottoms just sides. I'll have to take a pix and send it to you. I didn't know so many others people did gardening this way. WOW!!!

Oh yeah, since I got into No Till Gardening I wouldn't do it any other way.
It frees up my time to do other important things, like spending time with he kids.

This was last year's raised beds with a couple of the bucket's I used as containers for tomatoes and peppers. I am with you, no need to till again. This is way too efficient and economical with my time.

I dumped a load of grass clippings on them at the end of seaon and come spring it will be a simple matter of adding a foot or so of compost.

I REALLY like raised bed/square foot gardening. I previously had a lot of success with this approach in Indiana and have also had pretty good success in western Washington. This approach also allows the use of plant containers in which one can grow vegetables such as cherry tomatoes. The beauty of this approach is, the containers can be moved as necessary to take advantage of sunlight, shade, etc.
