You may be wondering what type of soil or soil mixture is best for seeds, potted plants, vegetables, or for making a garden bed.
Working in the Garden
Constructed of Douglas Fir Wood, this elevated planter box will last for years. While pine and fir are both softer woods, fir is stronger than pine. Also, while fir can expand and contract when exposed to water, it reliably returns to its original shape and size. Pine will swell and warp and stay warped permanently. Fir is much more expensive than pine.
Farming can be defined as agricultural activities such as breeding livestock and planting fields to produce a profit. Gardening, on the other hand, is a nature-based activity on a small scale that produces enough plants to beautify your garden and property while potentially growing some produce for your own use. But is this distinction always that clear?
