  • One dilemma facing many aspiring vegetable gardeners is sub-prime soil, shall we say. Compacted, clay soil is not uncommon in Kentuckiana but it is especially common in newer developments.  
    One way to off-set the problem is to employ a system of raised beds.  
    Raised beds are practical for many reasons and they are not just for the clay-challenged.  
    Practical because you do not have to till, dig, double dig or battle clay in a raised bed.  The soil has been added by you so it is as good as you want it to be.
