I’ve been working along with The Home Depot on this DIY project and have been lucky enough to have received most of the items used for our edible container garden, and as always my thoughts and opinions are entirely my own. 🙂
Are you ready to see the making of our garden? Here it is in all its glory…and there is a cute clip of Mabel in there too!
This was one of the easiest projects I’ve ever done and I felt silly that I was ever intimidated by it. If you want to make an edible container garden, you’ll only need a few things: A container/planter/or raised garden bed kit (like the one we used) Garden or topsoil And seeds/plants OPTIONAL ITEMS range from weed block fabric and stakes/tomato cages depending on the types of plants you choose to grow. As a side note = If you decide to make a smaller container garden, it’s possible to move your plants/containers. Once we decided where ours was going…it was too big to move. And if you didn’t see enough in the video, I’m gonna break it down with photos too! 🙂 I had Hubby do most of the manual labor…lol! Seriously, it was really easy and I probably could have managed on my own but it was a nice ‘couples’ activity to do together. I did some manual labor myself too…if putting a screw into the top post counts! And then I raked the topsoil we bought as evenly as possible. We opted to not use weed block fabric…I may regret this later. After filling all three garden beds with topsoil…we laid out the plants to figure out the best placement. Then we planted them… And then I played Mother Nature as I gave our little plants and seeds an extra boost with some water. And you might be wondering where Mabel was during most of this? Well…she had been napping and then woke up and decided to join us. Or maybe we didn’t really give her the option to decline our invitation. 😉 Yeah, my baby is in her jammies and a coat. The cute little sunglasses are on the ground because she didn’t tolerate them for very long. She was genuinely intrigued with her toys… And lastly…since our garden has only been planted since Sunday, I don’t have any progression photos to show off my green thumb…but look! MY FIRST STRAWBERRY! I’m pretty excited…it’s nowhere near ready but I can’t wait until there are enough to pick and share with Mabel. She loves strawberries so it will be nice to not have to buy them from the store and instead get them right from our own garden.
