Nice! May your tomatoes thrive.

Some of the stuff they pump into the redwood treated lumber
Chromated Copper Arsenate, Alkaline Copper Quat, Micronized Copper Quat, Copper Azole, Sodium Borates, Copper Naphthenate and Pentachlorphenol
All some really nasty stuff.
no pressure treated lumber for the beds.
Tomatoes and Garlic . . .
