Ready to start your edible garden? Excellent.
You don’t need raised beds, but a lot of people like them. They make weeding easier. They make your garden look tidy. And if the sunniest spot in your yard is over a concrete patio, or if the dirt in your area is full of glass and lead, you can build a raised bed (at least a foot deep), fill it with topsoil or planting mix, and you’re ready to go.
