Building Boxes

Next Step, building the boxes! Guess who got to do THAT job? :) Ted built me 5 boxes to get my garden started. I've had the seeds for a while at this point - couldn't wait to get started! I think we built these in June 2008.

SFG boxes only need to be 6" deep, but I needed to sink mine into the ground due to the slope in our yard so mine are 12" deep. After almost a year of using them I'm glad I went deeper.

We tried keeping the grass between the boxes but it was so difficult to mow, so that went bye-bye and in came some weed control fabric and mulch. Weed control fabric does not, in my opinion, actually do what it claims. :)
