Hi Veg Gardener,

We're in the midst of planning a decent inner city backyard veggie patch which will be raised about 30cm from ground level. All the links for veggie gardens discuss soil types in great depth but we can't find any info on suitable materials for building the garden walls. Basically wondering if the cheaper treated pine boards are ok or is there some problem with using a treated wood around a bed of which you are going to eat the produce? Local lumber yard has a nicer (and more expensive) red gum plank we're looking at as well, any reason why we shouldn't use treated pine that you may know of?

I'm asking you because in your blog photos it looks like you have treated pine planks around your beds and was wondering if all was ok?

Thanks in advance, Cass the virgin veggie grower!!!
