Cassie, to turn your raised bed into a potager should be quite simple and enjoyable. A potager is simply a decorative veg. garden so you do smart things ike weaving flowers for pollinating insects to get nectar through your vegetables. Make patterns with your veg. Each of my eight raised beds will have a wigwam with runnner beans and sweet peas growing up it and there will be lavender plants at the two corners by the middle path which will give a very fragrant walk up through the beds. Alternate red lettuce with green lettuce, thread a snake of annual flowers through the veg. Dot verbena bonariensis through to tower over the smaller veg. Get the idea?
