Indianapolis: Garfield Park Childrens’ Garden

Quite possibly one of the most ingenious raised bed ideas I’ve EVER seen! For a Zone 5 garden, these mammoth truck tires are brilliant. They absorb heat and bring the soil temp up early in the season, they hold moisture (critical when Indy hasn’t had any rain for a month), and make it easy to lean over and maintain the bed. Wow. And fun for the kids.

Go right ahead, try this at home!
