Wordless Wednesday: Raised garden beds

This is not my anti-tutorial about making raised vegetable garden beds with mamamilkers to counter the way The Pioneer Woman makes it all look so dang easy. (And I quote: "If you’re even remotely comfortable with using a drill, this entire project can take under an hour." Scoff, scoff, snort.) No, my anti-tutorial will come later. For now, enjoy a hint of summery gardeny goodness taking shape, wherein we make it look easy-breeezy ourselves, and stop back next Tuesday (June 8) for our June Carnival of Natural Parenting, where everyone's going to give you great ideas for playing outdoors!

Your raised beds look awesome. So worth the work, right? Hubby is making me one for my strawberries this weekend. Totally stoked.

This is the second spring that we have failed to put in raised beds. This might be inspiration to actually do it. I would love to have my herbs in a raised bed.

You should know that that picture of the worm has jolted good sense back into me. Worms are the number one reason why I don't do gardening. Blech!

Henrietta said...

I just LOVE playing in the dirt! It looks like your little one does too! I can't wait to see what your beds look like all finished.

Those raised beds look great! And very similar to ours
(which yeah, were not at all an easy, one hour project, haha!) Love the cold frame attachments, too (thats what that last one is, right?)
