I do NOT have a green thumb. I try. Again and again I try.
This year I have decided to jump on the “raised bed” craze. Except, I did not want to invest a lot in to this . . knowing that I most likely will kill the poor little plants.
So here we have an old, damaged cabinet; held together with a few extra bricks we had laying around. Much better than spending lots of dollars!
Right next to this is a box (that is not nearly as photogenic) that I made with pieces of barn wood from the burn pile, supported with more bricks, and lined a black trash bag to prevent the dirt from falling out where the two boards meet. I plan to build a few more out of the barn wood and bricks. There are a few more things that I want to plant.
Tonight I am thankful for our budget friendly garden boxes. I hope that the plants grow well and that I don’t kill the poor little plants!! Even if I do, I’ll be thankful that we are giving this another shot! You never know until you try!
