The Garden Chronicles, April 27, 2009
We've decided to use one raised garden bed instead of several ground level beds. We figured our veggies will have a better chance of growing in soil that isn't so clay-like and hard. On Sunday the whole family took a trip to the lumber store to round up our supplies. Once we returned home, the children took naps and Justin whipped this garden bed frame up. Once it was built, I helped him move it to the choice location and then he leveled it and attached steaks for added support. It turned out beautiful! Our seeds are doing great! Although some of the labels were washed away and we are not sure what is growing in some of the trays (note for next year, use waterproof labels...duh). I'm going to have to identify them with pictures. But fortunately most of the labels are still intact. Justin did an amazing job designing and building the garden bed, we love it!
