I've read some of the threads up, but have a more basic question than you all usually cover. We just got done building our house last spring, moved in and this summer we're trying to start working on getting a shed and a garden. I've only ever grown a few odds and ends in pots sitting on a deck. Our land is not really flat and we like to be gone a lot hiking in the summer so I'm wondering what kind of a simple garden I should try and put in. I'm thinking some raised beds (are raised beds like garden boxes?)? Raised beds with bottoms in them? About how high should I build them? I've found a nice sunny spot and I'd like to do this right and nice the first time, so am soliciting advice or tips from people who have done more gardening than me! I gather from your other forums which veggies will grow better here in Fairbanks, just need a little more specifics on what exactly in the way of soil to put into my raised beds when I get them done... Obviously, I'm buying my plants this year... Thanks for any tips in advanced!
