We’ve talked about wanting to have an herb, veggie, and fruit garden for years, but just never really pulled the plan together… Now that we’re trying to focus more on whole foods for our diet, we made it a priority project.
We had some lumber already, so Erik started building the frame in our garage. He built two layers and then fastened them together with boards on the interior. I wish I had gotten pictures of the process because it was kinda cool and he looked like such a hot handy-man while he was putting everything together.
We carried the frame into the backyard and spent about 30 minutes debating the location and angle of it until we finally got it settled. Then we made our trip to Lowes to get (a) weed block for the bottom (b) cheap topsoil for the base (c) organic fertilizer (d) organic topsoil (e) seeds: basil, cilantro, 3 kinds of tomatoes, green beans, and blackberries (f) a fun garden flag that says “it’s 5 o’clock somewhere”.
Isn’t it the cutest thing you’ve ever seen?
