The Home Depot was a super fun partner in this series of posts, they provided most of the materials for our garden and as always my thoughts and opinions were 100% my own! Now that our little garden is on it’s way to growing and yielding some pretty awesome veggies and fruits…I’ve had some time to reflect. My biggest revelation is: I will no longer let outside DIY projects intimidate me! After doing my research on The Home Depot Garden Club’s website, which broke the entire project down step by step…I realized that creating my own garden wasn’t as overwhelming as I first thought. Honestly, the only difficult part of this task was loading the 16 bags of topsoil into my car…and that’s what Hubby was for. 😉 So my tip is to make sure you have someone who can lift heavy things or a Home Depot associate that will be kind enough to help you load your vehicle! One other tip is be prepared to take most of the day to put together your raised garden bed. If you’re making a smaller edible container garden in planters or pots, it won’t take as long! The best part of the project has yet to happen: being able to eat what grows! This is going to require some patience…but it’ll happen and Mabel and I are going to show those strawberries who’s boss! And now that Hubby and I have this DIY project under our belts, we’ve been inspired to get more done! We got motivated to put our porch swing up (after sitting on the porch floor for months)!
We are planning on staining our deck! It needs to be done desperately! And we’re going to move our raspberry plant into its own pot, therefore making another edible raspberry container garden. Sweet! It’s going to be placed on our deck where it will get lots of sun.
I really hope that this series of posts have motivated you to try creating your own container garden or raised garden bed! It really is pretty simple and you’ll be rewarded with plenty of fresh vegetables to cook with and fruit to enjoy over the summer!
