Sorry it has been so long since I posted! I am loving teaching school and find myself swamped with all that goes with getting a room ready and learning the ropes of teaching. I do really love it! My classes are wonderful, the kids are really fun to teach and love… and science is amazing, it is very fun to teach.
I have Saturdays, mornings and afternoons for my garden now. I have pulled everything out and am turning over the soil to plant my fall/winter garden. I am going to plant spinach, broccoli, green beans and kale. Kent wants me to plant potatoes again; I am going to try fingerlings! I think that would be so fun! I wont be able to plant until next weekend as this weekend I am getting our fourth daughter settled into college life. What a fun journey awaits her.
I want to say a big thank you for all the sweet kind comments and support I receive. I often get emails from gardeners telling me how their garden is growing and how it was building their boxes. I thought I would share a few. They always make my day! Good luck getting your garden going – I am very much looking forward to planting my winter garden soon. Pictures coming when I do. Have a blessed day!
Recent emails I have received:
I am so excited to have built my first bed! Took about 2 hrs including all the wood cutting, but I didn’t have a helper, and I am sure the next 3 will go faster. The plans you provided are EXCELLENT! very clear and simple! i can totally imagine your new 5th graders building these and learning gardening! i hope youll get that chance! i did make 1 change… i made my legs 36″long as im on the tall side.
I am so excited to use your bed design to convert our old boat parking pad into another garden. Thank you so much for sharing!
love your raised beds. I have tried a couple of different ones in my own garden and ended up just going back to “flat” ground gardens. your idea I will try. raised beds are great but if your still have to stoop over what’s the point? your beds an be adjusted to whatever height is needed. our little town is trying to start a community garden and I will be showing your garden to the person in charge. really great.
The plans are fantastic, my husband has already built my first one! The plans definitely took the guess work out of getting started and helped my husband and I communicate about what I was trying to achieve.
Thank you so much! I will update you on how my garden grows!
