Raised beds of steel? Call Superman
We've been talking about planting vegetable gardens in raised beds here on Garden Variety and I guess I thought you would build them of wood.
Gardener's Supply catalog has, new this year, raised beds made from strips of galvanized sheet metal.
Since farmers use the material for watering troughs and outbuildings, it makes sense to use it to form the sides of raised beds.

The steel beds some in two sizes, 3 feet by 3 feet for $65 and 3 feet by 6 feet for $100.
The beds are 10 inches deep, which is pretty generous, and no tools are required to assemble them.
