Kim and Jim — Raised Concrete Garden Beds

Kim and Dan's garden in the Arcata Bottoms

Kim and Jim live in the Arcata bottoms — they built great garden beds out of concrete blocks.  Some of them they planted trailing herbs and flowers in, others they covered with a flat piece of concrete so there is an edge to sit on while you garden.  These are two blocks high so are a good height for sitting while tending the beds.
