Wooden raised beds

My initial plan was to use pallet wood to make beds, however time pressure meant I used what I had at hand. My beds have all been built with bricks and blocks. Until today.

Wood rots, and I did not want to use a manufactured preservative that would typically contain unsavory chemicals that I did not want plants I would eat, taking up. I decided on vegetable oil, it’s cheap and would offer some protection. One post recommended using vinegar with it so I did.

The wood was donated from furniture plus, it’s scrap bed slats. This limited the size of the bed to a bed size but it’s worked out well.
