Hexagon garden box

This is kind of cool. I was making a special hexagon garden box. It will be a pole bean teepee garden for the kids. Anyway, I came up with this modular box arrangement almost by accident. It’s really cool. It allows me to build the boxes in my shop, move them up to the garden! And just slide them together. I came up with a bunch of others designs using the same concept spirals snakes etc. I think it will be fun building method to play around with.

PS I will post an update when the teepee is finished and grown in.

Garden Day

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.
