This is my third year to plant a garden. I am still amazed to watch a tiny seed/plant turn into food for my family's table. This year I filled my raised bed garden to the brim and needed more space. My husband came up with the solution by building a planter box for our deck. He used mainly scrap wood to build the frame and only spent around $10 on new lumber. I pulled the left over trim paint from our recent siding project and slapped on a coat. After a coat of paint, soil, and veggies, the planter box garden is ready to grow.
I have also been trying to grow a dwarf cucumber plant in a pot; so far it is doing well.
This season I have harvested some sugar peas, cucumbers, and a few carrots. Soon I hope to start gathering tomatoes.
Anyone else growing their own vegetables this year? Tips on overcoming our drought?
