Might give that a try. As for my parsley I forgot to pick it and it is too cold and dark to check now,but with the cold weather we have had the last few days I am guessing it will be long gone.

Bottom is open all the way to the natural soil. First it was filled with the cheap fill and then some native topsoil. We added water to settle the dirt down before the final fill of a mix of mushroom dirt and topsoil goes in. Not so much of that so the trusty shovel will get a workout while I sit in the shade and use the camera.

The filling made easy.


Hand finishing and the liner shown.


The big power shovel.


Dirt Soup.
Nice project pics!! I'm surprised you didn't throw a bunch of cardboard down at the bottom.
What does the side liners do aside from keeping things warm maybe?


Looking forward to seeing the Spring crops from there.

I just planted some fava beans. Hoping this will help my clayish soil, I have not got good yield in anything from this bed yet.

I have oregano, thyme, and rosemary right now. It’s nice to be able to have fresh herbs in the winter.

I am happy to report the shallots and garlics I planted a month ago peak their heads up from the ground. It's nice to see little green heads in the middle of winter.

All my bulbs are heading up nicely. I planted these after Christmas, daffodils are peaking, so are hyciant(sp). 2 of my trees I planted recently have new leaves. So excited.
I did plant some more fava beans and sugar snap peas today.

I planted potatoes yesterday. Just one 12 foot row. I don't think my garden's going to be very big this year

I lined in hopes of protecting the boards holding the dirt will not rot not making contact with the soil. Time will tell. Who knows this way they may out last me.

I bought some onion seeds and more tomato seeds yesterday. I’m waiting for the rain to stop before I can plant them. Can’t wait.
