The weather here is starting to warm up and we’ve been getting a few days outside to get started on this year’s garden. Since this will be our first year here, lots of what we’ll be doing is infrastructure. We’ll get some veggies planted and put in some of the bigger plants, but not much more. First project is the herb garden:
This is the lowest level on our newly redone hill. There will be more beds when we’re done and this will mostly be for herbs.
We have another area where we’ll be doing a veggie area so we’ll need lots more planter boxes and beds so here I’m cutting old fence boards to make these boxes:
The fence boards came from a fence we took down to make room for my shed and from my daughter’s home where some fence had been partly burned last summer’s wild fires. She’s replaced her wood fence with a metal fence.
The stacks on the right are what I’ve salvaged so far and will make six more planter boxes.
If you need me, I’ll be out back cutting fence boards.
