Spring Garden Box

This past weekend Zach and I took on the project of building a garden box in my parent's side yard. We were kind of nervous at first and didn't really know where to go with it, but it ended up being a lot easier than expected!

We ended up making the box 3x5' and 12" deep.

We bought some cedar planks and hand them cut down and it was as simple as screwing the edges together, adding a second row and screwing them both into four 2" square spindles.

Now all we have to do is fill it with soil and starter veggie plants! We are going to wait a few weeks to make sure the temps don't get to low at night. But I can't wait to eat some fresh veggies from the garden this summer! And now we know how to build our own once we get our own place!
