Vegetable Garden

Pin It

Last year my neighbor and I decided we wanted to start a vegetable garden together. I had no clue where to begin so I went to the library and researched online. I found that maybe just maybe I could do this.  My first step was a plan. 
Step 1 Have a plan: We decided to use GrowVeg.com  to measure and plan our garden. I highly recomend this site it is well worth the money spent. We were able to make the plan before we bought our wood.

Step 2 Build the boxes: The next step was building our raised beds. We decided on 4 total  beds. Each bed was 10 by 4 feet.

Step 3 Lay down cardboard: We used cardboard to kill grass and prevent weeds.

Step 4 fill your boxed: We used mushroom compost and the cheapest top soil we could find.

Here is what it looked like when we were finished.
