  • One dilemma facing many aspiring vegetable gardeners is sub-prime soil, shall we say. Compacted, clayey 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.

    Calvary Assembly of God

    (1 Corinthians 1:18 (NKJV)
    18 For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.
    This time of year people of the Christian faith celebrate the death and resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. His death came as he was hung on a torturous cross and then placed in a borrowed tomb for burial.
