One of the advantages of having raised-row beds is the ability to drain off flooding. The rows here at the Veggie-Bed are built up and have furrows between them. The furrows allow excessive rain to run off into a ditch that retains the water and slowly soaks back into the surrounding ground. In the past, this entire area would remain flooded for days.
