As we approach the end of August it is time for the end of summer and labor day sales! This is a great time to start looking for deals on items for building new raised beds or finding cheap containers for next year. You can use most anything for a growing container outside so long as you have a good soil mix in it, you have proper drainage, and you watch it closely for needing to be watered as they dry out quicker than the garden.
The Purdue Extension Office in Allen County Indiana has some great examples of raised beds in the display gardens. The gardens are worth a visit on their own as well. Purdue extension also has great information online, you can find a great paper about raised bed and container gardening here. https://ag.purdue.edu/hla/pubs/HO/HO-200.pdf
