Not Your Granny's Garden Boxes

My friend Sara thinks that raised beds look like they belong in your Grandma's yard.

She might be right. But I'd like to think that my garden beds are cool. Cool, like I'm an urban farmer and this is how we get our locally grown, sustainable veggies. In reality though, this is the first time I've ever tried to grow anything in a garden. That is, if you don't count the failed attempt at cucumbers last year (and all the herbs I've killed on my condo balcony). But Seriously, what's the use of a huge yard and great summer weather, if you don't at least try to grow stuff. Besides, everyone else is doing it, right?!
The best part of this entire experiment is that hubby got to put his building and design skills to good use. He came up with the plan and placement for the boxes and had them completed by the time I came home from a business trip.

A lot of tools were purchased for this project. I'm starting to see a pattern here. Every time a project gets close to completion, hubby says, "Um, I think I'm going to need a stop at the hardware store for a tool to finish this project."

He's pretty clever that hubby of mine!
