Making garden boxes this weekend!

John and I are finally going to make the raised bed boxes for our veggie garden tomorrow!  We will be going to Lowe's to get the lumber, then we will construct them, then fill will dirt and finally plant tomatoes, cukes and squash.  That is all I'm doing this year.  I hope they turn out!  I have been pinning some box directions on pinterest and a friend of mine sent me a site that I need to look at tonight.  With all the information out there, we should be able to do this!

I will take photos and post them on here sometime this weekend for all to see.  Wish us luck!!

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

We have made several of these Sherri. You will do a great job. The only thing I would make sure to do, is place landscape fabric on the ground before you fill them with top soil/compost/cow poo etc.

oops...meant to add, that the fabric will keep weeds and grass from growing up through.

It's always so much fun to do these projects. We've always thought about doing a raised garden box, but have never done it. I just know yours will be fabulous!

Ring of Kerry, Ireland
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
