Boxes are Done!

So we got our boxes made. They look really nice, we found some 12 x 2 x 12 redwood on clearance and they had just enough pieces to make our 4 boxes. The bottoms are fence planks cut to size. We also coated everything with water sealer to help prolong the wood life (even though redwood is recommended for garden boxes) and it makes them all dark and pretty.

We've got them built and lined with weed cloth, mainly to keep the soil in while giving ample drainage and we are now getting the soil started, oof are my back muscles not liking that.

Ha! and there's mom who does not really like to be in pics, but I told her I needed a visual reference for a 4 foot tall box.

Next week we should have all the boxes filled and the trellising done.
