My Garden Plan

So to start, we built two 4′ X 4′ raised garden bed frames using four 8′ x 2″ doug fir boards from Home Depot. $10.50 ea. I know people say use cedar so your frame won’t rot away, but I am going to test how long this frame lasts, ’cause doug fir is WAY cheaper than cedar. I also had 3 cubic yards of garden soil/compost mix delivered, at $30 per yard plus delivery fee. Wish I had a pick-up truck, but we don’t, so. . .

Here’s my dream list for growing the veggies we like to eat. Now I have to figure out how and where on the property to grow these.
