|Raised Beds at Sycamore Shoals State Park|
My family and I recently visited Sycamore Shoals State Park in Elizabethton, TN. This is a really nice state park and is only about a twenty minute drive from our house. The park features a fort with examples of frontier living by the river. There are really nice walking trails and I was excited to see that they have examples of raised garden beds just outside the fort.
If you would like more information about the park, here is a link to their website:
I took some pictures of the raised beds where they were growing corn. I hadn't thought about growing corn in such a confined space, but it seems to be working well. I also liked the "walking plank" they stretched across the raised bed. This path will be very useful come harvest time plus it is a fun way for a child to experience the garden. My two year old loved working his way back and forth through the corn stalks on this plank path.
