Since we moved to the new house, the yard hasn’t been in the best of shape and we haven’t been able to grow any food, like we did at our old place. So Chris decided to build a planter box in the back yard. After a couple of trips to Home Depot for redwood 2x6s, it was a quick job, cutting and screwing together the planter box. It’s a nice solid 4′ x 8′ box (and 18″ high), suitable for use as a bench, and holds alot of dirt, totaling around 3000 lbs, which Chris had to shovel. We added some compost to amend the soil and planted strawberries, cabbage and tomatoes. Can’t wait for our first harvest.
