|This is the 'Right Stuff''|
Priced out wood for raised beds. I found spruce that would make it $24.00 for each bed at 4'x 8' and two boards stacked to a depth of one foot. They recommended a product called Lifetime that you paint on as a benign preservative. I will have to look into that to see if it is indeed safe.
I have decided to dig up the raspberry before it gets too established and put it back in the same spot but in a raised bed so the runners will be contained. It is honestly the most delicious raspberry I've ever tasted, so I want a nice big full bed of them. It is a Meeker.
