Wednesday Woodworking – The Boxes Arrive

I made three more planter boxes for the caged garden. Now we have five and Heather has started planting lettuce for a winter garden. There are four boxes left to make.

I haven’t been in the shop as much since getting back from England, but hope to get a few more projects out before the cold weather settles in.  You know, California cold, like below 70.

If you need me – I’ll be in the garden.

  2. Those look so awesome. I wonder if you can even keep gophers out. Those are the worst for us.

    A “winter garden” open to the elements gave me pause … but I live in Colorado, so what do I know.

    • If it wasn’t for irrigation, I’d be living in a semiarid waste land. We can grow crops almost all year, except in the Months of Dec, Jan and parts of Feb.

  9. “CA cold” made me chuckle. It’s in the 30’s already here, and I saw snow flakes up north yesterday. Love your boxes. You do good work.
