New raised garden beds

My husband volunteered to build me 2 more raised beds so I said I wanted them as soon as possible..Then he had to get the dirt. He found topsoil mixed with mulch..We both took quite a few hours getting it and dumping it into the beds..He made them extra wide? but I did not complain. LOL
Got them planted and I have radishes poking up out of the dirt already. It is not fenced and I saw three deer out in the back after midnight. I wonder if I can afford a fence too?

What herbs did you grow this year ?

Did you dry any for winter use ?
Do you use them for cooking only or for medicinal purposes , too ?

Who Saves Seeds?

Who is saving seeds for next year and what are they? Do you save flowers,veggies, or both? This year I'm saving Black Krim tomato and Contender greenbeans. I want to try to start growing only heirloom veggies so that I can collect and save the seeds. How do you save your seeds? O.K., I got the ball rolling....your turn! :)
