Make a Raised Garden Bed

gardenbed
On today's post, I will share our latest project, a "Raised
Garden Bed".  I will keep the post short and sweet.
There are several ways to construct a raised
garden bed, and it all depends on your budget, the size that you
want and the wood you will use.
Our garden bed is 18 inches in height, that gives me enough room to
plant vegetables like carrots, sweet potatoes, and onions. It is 3 x 6
feet. In order to get an idea for the type of garden bed that you
want to build, I will provide this link here
There, you will see several varieties; you may choose which one to make.

We planted some seeds this summer in biodegradable egg cartons,
so when they sprout, we may plant them in our vegetable garden.
You may view that in my Instagram account.

We added chicken wire to the bottom as well as this dark weed
liner to prevent weeds from growing & critters from digging
from underneath the bed.

My husband measured the width & length on the ground
in order to remove the grass to prepare the ground for the raised bed.

We added the soil and mixed it with organic compost.

After the soil was mixed into the garden bed, we added the plants.

I hope that this inspires you today to create your own garden bed.
