Went to the 'Raised Bed Gardening' class today at COCC. the guy giving it was SO enthused about gardening in Central Oregon that it was neat and catching.. BUT I can not use the rail road ties as they are coated with arsenic so they will last and not rot. So won't be using those!! Really don't want to have my food, especially raw food growing in arsenic... poison, does not sound like a good idea, so even have to get the actual raised beds.. geez.... oh well
It is good to know there are ways around our short growing season, all the critters/pests and the abysmal soil. Just work and coverings and amendments to the soil .....
I have been impressed with the classes, teachers and content of the classes offered. Really like the yoga class, which continues into June.
