For Mother’s Day my wife gave me a short list of things she would like. One of those things was a raised vegetable and herb garden. She even let me see four thousand examples on Pinterest. Thanks for that Pinterest. Using some of the ideas I saw on Pinterest and what I knew of our backyard, I put together a plan and headed to Lowe’s. I bought 13 boards that were 8 feet long by 4 inch wide by 1 inch deep.
Once I got my boxes assembled I screwed them onto my fence. My backyard has a bit of a slope to it, as you can see by my crazy fence. I decided to mount my garden boxes on the fence parallel to the ground, even though that wasn’t true level.
Now came the really fun part. A trip back to Lowe’s to get some herbs and vegetables! (This is where Greyson had his infamous “I want a pizza plant” quote)
Here is what our finished garden looks like. We are super excited and can’t wait until we can eat some of the vegetables later this season! So what do you guys think? Honestly, it was fairly simple to make and we were able to put a surprising amount of plants into our garden. Only time will tell how well it does and how much we are able to harvest. Hopefully our hard work will pay off!
