More on the Raised Beds
Built second raised bed. Same size as first. Here is the bottom.
Chicken wire stapled to the box.
Flipped over, so the screen is at the soil level. This will frustrate moles, no end. I like that I'm filling the box largely with soil from mole-hill tops. But I don't want to make a new luxury condo for them.
This box is now about half full. It takes a lot of soil to fill a 4 X 6 box, a foot deep.
