    An old Aussie has joined, thanks to your vids. I've hated gardening and gardens, but now, after watching you, I got this itch in my thumbs that wouldn't go away. So, now I'm building an elevated bed with enthusiasm, and a first time interest, in home grown vegies. And I'm 80!

    As a Canadian, I really appreciate you explaining the height helping warm the soil quicker!

    Mr. Hollis… with the treated wood… will that harm/contaminate the harvest of the planting?

    I put in a garden with several raised beds 20 years ago that were doing great until my neighbors planted big trees in their back yards along our shared fence. Now the roots from their trees are growing up into my raised beds. Is there anything I can do to prevent or stop this?

    Hi Hollis, we live in Ontario Canada. I'M going to put in a couple raised beds soon. You mentioned making the bed higher in a colder climate. So ifI were to make my sides 24 inches, how high would I add the soil matter?

    @ 8:48 you have what I guess is a 'trellis'' for the tomatoes. Is that the purpose, and if I guessed wrong…What is it?

    Hollis, can you explain the layering of the peat moss, compost, then the manure instead of mixing all 3 together?

    Hi Hollis & Nancy! I just love your videos, & especially how you thank God & give Him all the glory! I have been healed of colon cancer 2 years – thank You, Jesus! I didn't do a garden this year because since I was sick so many things have gone into disrepair around here, & I want catching up, so something had to give. My garden is full of weeds taller than me now! 😣 I think I'm going to spray them with green gobbler vinegar & burn them off once they are dried & then till it in before winter. Does that sound OK? I'm currently watching you build raised beds because here in NH we grow rocks, & I've tried both earth & raised… I think I'm going to build some raised around the earth to have the best of both & my good soil in the middle won't wash away in the heavy rain 🙂 I'm so thankful you share your knowledge & experience with others. May the Lord bless you both richly in all ways ❤️

    Should you paint or oil the wood to keep from rotting…?

    Hollis, love the channel. I watch your videos every day. Learning from you has made me a better gardener and back yard farmer. I'm moving to Connecticut next year and I'm going to be doing half earth garden and half raised beds. I will have 6 4×8 raised beds. How many bags of Miracle Gro Really Good Compost did you use? I see one bag of peat and 3 of black kow. Thanks again. Hope florida is treating you and Nancy well.

    For those worrying about using pressure-treated lumber with growing veggies, you can staple poly cloth all around the box (not the bottom) to help keep any possible chemicals away from the plants. It's great for keeping moisture away from the wood as well for even more longevity.

    I appreciate how you take time to explain things simple and with detail. Do you use weed fabric? Is all your lumber treated?

    Hollis, I noticed that you didn't put a screen down before you back filled the bed. I did that when I made mine and then I got moles in them. Man that was a pain to dig it all out then put the screen in and the put the soil in again. Just wondering.
