a raised garden bed that is! With the cancer, I cannot bend to work my garden, nor can I get down low enough to the ground to plant, weed, etc. With raised beds, I can use a garden cart to sit, push myself along the bed and be able to reach into the center. I’ve been looking at raised beds for the last 2 years, but they just haven’t happened with everything else happening.
Where I work, people often move off and leave furniture and stuff…and eventually, it’s available for anyone to claim. I found a wooden bed frame…twin size and brought it home. I have a vision, lol….wish I had snapped a shot to share of the original.
Then we had to whip out a tape and measure everything. No, I don’t understand why it had to be measured since it came from a bin with the measurements marked, but I’m thinking it’s a guy thing!
Here is the first of the two bed boxes. They’re 3′ x 6′ x 15″ tall. The finished wood is the original bed frame, Ernie just filled in the middles. Now to order in some top soil and builders sand. That’s a research job for another day, lol. I’m so excited to have the beds I’ve dreamed about for so long. Maybe this time next year we’ll still be harvesting good things to eat!
In one of my magazines, there is a small greenhouse that starts off with 2 raised beds….can we see where this might be going????? I love having a handyman husband! And I love being able to recycle things into needed items :-)
