Garden Bed

Yesterday I spent about 4 hours putting together a 4′ x 4′ cedar garden bed. I sanded and sealed each of the cedar boards I would need from the kit, and while those were drying, I levelled out the trenches that the bed walls would sit in. After that, assembly went very quickly, sliding boards into corner post notches. The result is a 17″ tall soon-to-be borscht garden, with beets, cabbage, tomatoes, onions, dill, and carrots – and maybe more. I’m so happy to get one bed made, and I hope to get at least 2 more up by the end of April.
