Power tools can be a girl's best friend! I don't spend ALL my time quilting, and this is what I have just spent the last hour making...
I can't lay any more of the matting/mulch down until the beds are made and in place. I had plans to get them all made yesterday but then it rained...and rained...and rained...with more forecast for today, but there was a break in the rain so I ran out and made this one. Not 5 seconds after putting in the last screw, you guessed it - it started to rain again!
This thing is heavy. I went with 2x6x8's instead of 1x6x8's, so it's twice as heavy as it was going to be, but it sure is nice and solid! Now my only problem is how to get it from where it is, all the way into that back corner!
You Go Girl!!!
We made two beds like this for our garden this year, planted them just over a month ago, and the plants are growing like crazy. I have actual tomoatoes, peppers and cucumbers growing, a first for me. Good luck on your garden!
I need something like that for my strawberries that are taking over my patch of garden.
We made a raised bed like that last year...and we love it!! Enjoy all those veggies! Do you compost? My 16 year old son built us a compost box and that has also been great. I also love the "garden bed" double bed--I have always wanted one of those. I have seen them around our town and they make me giggle!! One has a cut out of a person's head where the pillow would be. It looks so fun!
