[Homestead] Raised Bed Advice

Well, I can still do most barr exercises and could still do splits front to
back and sideways and do a conversion from one to other when I was in my
late 40s and early 50s. With no creaking <g> And that's after 3 back
injuries and scoliosis!
Now, the scoliosis isn't my fault but the first back injury was. However, I
think I'm excused since being 10 at the time means I was still rather
impulsive and flying under the misconception that I was invincible <g>
Lesson learned -- don't ride a two year old stud bareback! Second one was
sort of my fault. One really shouldn't be scooting around on wheeled
chairs. Lesson learned -- don't trust the maintenance people when they say
they fixed the chair. Third back injury, not my fault! Lesson learned --
acccidents happen <g>
Besides, the back or the age aren't why I've got the raised beds. I don't
have dirt and I do have the whole mole/gopher thing. Rocks anyone????
Plus, ease of operation means I can do more stuff before the heat drives me
indoors AND my particular raised beds will allow me to double purpose them
so that they will be cold frames also.
Doncha just love multi-tasking <g>
