I'm in the process of building several raised beds, some of
which I'm building using pressure-treated southern yellow pine;
but I'm also building some from untreated yellow pine.  I've got 
a couple of concoctions I'm putting on the untreated wood, to
see how long the wood will last;  but, if any of you have run
across any wood treatment that you'd like me to try, let me
know and if I can I'll include it in the test.  I'll be watching these
beds over the next couple of years, and I'll keep y'all posted on
the progress.
