If you wish to grow your own vegetables this summer, remember that you increase your chances of success by planting your seeds in a raised garden bed. It is because raised beds provide better drainage. It is also easier on your back. A DIY tutorial from Sunset magazine even tells you how to drape the bird netting or row covers over your raised beds.

For a weekend project, you will have plenty of time to also build the perfect compost bin.

      Yannick, I suppose that it does since it is a planter.
