In Progress : Raised Garden Bed and Vertical Garden

making a raised garden bed - pile of scrap wood

My little girl and I planted some seeds a couple weeks ago (indoors) so she can learn how to grow her own food – from seed to our bellies. But first I have to make the raised garden bed. We are all beginners in this house so we’re starting small – beets, lettuce, cucumber, carrots, rosemary and basil and a couple flowers. Rod picked me up some free wood from a local mill and now I just need to clean, cut, sand and assemble them into the perfect garden bed. I also have plans to build a vertical garden that goes against the outside of our house, right by the raised garden, as to create more space for growing but without taking too much of our backyard real estate.
