Any gardener knows that having the right soil can make all the difference in achieving great results in the garden. Unfortunately, not every garden is blessed with nutrient-dense, high-quality soil. Raised bed gardening is the perfect solution.

A raised bed is basically a large, above-ground planter, with walls ranging from 6-24 inches high. Generally these beds are encased in some sort of frame usually wood, concrete or stone. Raised beds are a convenient gardening option, but they aren't without their downfalls. One downside is that they must generally be cultivated by hand. Garden tillers are almost impossible to use in a raised bed.

WEST YELLOWSTONE, Mont. - Protestors with the Buffalo Field Campaign fan out across southeastern Montana this week to raise awareness about the planned hunt and slaughter of about 900 Yellowstone bison by the National Park Service.

The herd numbers around 4,900 and every year, some animals migrate into Montana, where they're either shot or spooked with all-terrain vehicles or helicopters to drive them back into the park, mostly by cattle ranchers who say they're concerned the bison might spread brucellosis.

It came as no surprise, to those following the ongoing nuclear melt-downs at Fukushima, and the continuation of pouring seawater to cool the Corium masses, the T.E.P.C.O would "simply run out of room" for the highly radioactive waste water.

TEPCO has no choice but to pour the cooling water straight back into the Pacific Ocean from whence it came, after assurances that this practice was never going to happen. The implications and ramifications for the Pacific ocean, and food chains around the world, is a fact and an eventuality, no longer a possibility. As this is a first time Global crisis phenomenon, there is no data, no science and no research to lead us on with a solution, nor guide us with any protective measures as to the ongoing crisis.
