« Part 2: The Middle Part 3 of Greenhouse series Part 4: Details and Topping it off »

Yesterday afternoon I finished off the front wall of the greenhouse and we installed the walls into the raised beds. The bottom 8” of the walls (that would go into the box and in the soil, we wrapped the wood in plastic so as to avoid rot. DW dug the trenches. The fit was a little tight, which I expected. I was expecting things to be a little out of square as I used ripped 2×4s, but surprisingly it was not too bad. Enjoy the pics.

Looks interesting. Is this just for starting plants or do you intend to use this all through the growing season?

A great job. Looks real nice.

Is the lower raised bed for plants or as a heat sink to store heat for the greenhouse.

Mark . . . it is going to be used for the entire season. Tomatoes, peppers and the like. Stuff with long growing times.

Not sure what you mean by lower bed Karson? Both of the beds inside will be used for growing. The one outside will be used for herbs. Heat sink . . . hmmm . . . never thought of that. Right now the ground between the beds is sand . . . maybe some stone would hold the heat.
