Last year my son-in-law and I built a raised garden which would be my first attempt at growing veggies. Thanks to a very wet Maine summer things didn’t do too well, but that didn’t dampen my intent to try again, perhaps with some different things.
So, with the help of Amy, who knows far more about gardening than I, my garden grows. Lettuce is ready for plucking, and it won’t be long til radishes, carrots, broccoli, red and green cabbage, sweet peas, peppers and beets are ready for the table. So exciting!
If you are interested in an at home garden, this one couldn’t be easier to build. It requires three 8 foot 2 x 12 inch boards, one of which is cut into 4 foot lengths. The boards are screwed together at the corners to make a 4′ x 8′ frame. All that is left is to put it in a sunny spot, fill it with dirt and plant away. Then, enjoy the thrill of watching those veggies grow and the pleasure of the harvest. Yum!
