So I think the raised bed that my fiance built me just isn't right for what I want to grow. Coupling that with this being my first year gardening, along with hoping for a bountiful harvest in the Pacific Northwest and I think I might be in trouble. The box he built is 8 ft. long, 2 ft. wide and 2 ft. tall. It also has a "lip" around the edge for me to sit on. It already has about 10 bags of soil in it, so moving it is out of the question unless I take out the transplants and the soil. What would you all recommend? Should I cut the side panels in half to make them 1ft. tall? I have quite a list of plants I'd like to try out and my melons and corn are shooting up along with my peas and beans. They are all in little cups in my garage right now - and are outgrowing their current environment. I know I shouldn't have started the melons and such inside, but I got impatient
Any suggestions on what to do would be great - I'd also like to get my seedlings out of my garage where they currently are, since my fiance parks the cars in there and he remarked about the fumes from the cars killing my seedlings (which I never even thought of!!). I don't have a basement to put them in or anything and my puppy pulls up and eats plants that are within reach (Which I think is why the fiance built the bed up so high). Okay..end rant - hoping for some help!
P.s. Posting pics of seedlings in a sec
