This eight foot wide octagon bed is designed to maximize production in a small space. Here you can see the slope where the difference between the north side and the south side is about 18 inches. We placed a caisson to hold a center pole for vine type vegetables.

This eight foot wide octagon bed is designed to maximize production in a small space. Here is the finished product with the bed fully excavated and backfilled with topsoil, composted leaves, and composted kitchen waste.

This eight foot wide octagon bed is designed to maximize production in a small space. We found a discarded tetherball pole, which we have placed in the center of the bed and attached an old bicycle rim to the top. From this we will run the cords for vining vegetables. Our pole beans will be pole dancing.
