Garden flowers . The beauty of food growing.
My wife suggested I make her a garden bench out of some old bed frames we had in the attic. I used an additional 2×4 for arms and a 1×8 to cover out the framing but everything else came for from the frames. It was a really fun project, and I like how it turned out, and it’s a good place to sit. While the garden comes in.
In spite of the drizzle yesterday and today are garden days. We cleaned out the beds, added and filled two more beds, mulched and planted. This year my son was old enough to really help out with the heavy lifting, so It went really fast. The news paper cups worked out great and we are about 80% planted. It was a good weekend. I still have to add a fence around the garden a bench and four special beds that are going to fill in all extra space, but the hard parts done…. Well mostly.
Cool, but a little creepy. One of my bosses at work ordered precast burial vaults minus the top and asked them to cast in some drains. It cost him 90$ a vault plus $10 a vault for delivery. The wood on the bottom was only added so he does not have to bend down at all to tend them. It is one of my favorite ideas ever for a box garden.
My hanging pumpkin…
Just more garden pics. It is growing every day…
Garden is final beginning to come in.. Most of the squares have some filling out to do, but they look on track. Corn stalks on the 3 sisters bed should be more then knee high by the 4th of July and that’s key for this area.
