New Garden Boxes

*UPDATE* We got the rock laid around the garden boxes and it looks great! The plants love their new home and I'm so excited that the project is completed!

 

I'm surprised Jason hasn't already killed me for the unnecessary manual labor I've put him through. This is the third garden spot we've constructed but it's the best one yet. Our first year gardening was in this same spot w/o the garden boxes. We (I) couldn't control the weeds and it was just too big for our little family. So we covered up the whole area with sod and built a smaller garden box which was great but it was quickly being taken over by strawberries which my kids love to pick and eat in the summer. So after much deliberation on how to solve the problems of weed control plus our separate interests of what we like to grow, Jason came up with these garden boxes and I'm so excited to see how the rest of it develops. We're planning to add rock around the garden boxes and maybe a drip system later. Last night the kids helped me plant onions, garlic, carrots and beets. Today we'll see what else we can get in it. Even though the kids don't like some of the vegetables to eat, they love planting and watching them grow. I was getting a kick out of Brandon singing to the plants last night as he was watering.




*UPDATE We got everything planted and are now working on leveling the ground for rock.

  2. Thank you for sharing. Strawberries from the backyard sounds nice! I also want to set up garden boxes, using recycled materials, but we left all of them in a warehouse. If I could ever do this soon, I'll be planting herbs and spices. - Olivia
