pine vs cedar for raised bed

18 years ago

I am building 2 4'x8' raised beds. Last year I built 3 with cedar but this year I am having problems finding the cedar and was thinking about using 2 2x6 untreated pine from the local depot/lowes. Has anyone used the regular pine and if so, how long has it lasted? I can put boiled linseed oil on it or any other clear/tinted finish that would make it safe for veggies. thanks, rich
