We picked up "poop-grade" untreated cedar fencing yesterday. We got the 6' lengths cut in half and screwed together the boards. Ta Da! Planter boxes. Hey, I was not going to do this but it turned out to be much cheaper than I figured. Himself had an excellent idea. Two angles shown below.
We will add more peat moss, compost and soil tomorrow, or when it is not raining, which ever comes first.
We picked up two varieties of blueberry bushes and a josta berry (cross between currant and gooseberry) at the nursery yesterday. I will have to get sweet potatoes in the organic section of the grocery store and start them that way. no one has them! They do grow here well. I love regular potatoes, (yes I am planting those too), but I also love sweet potatoes...fried, mashed, pie... Yum.
I split my mint plants today and dampened the little peat turds that seeds are germinating in. I am doing them in batches so I can rotate in and out various vegetables, staggering harvesting and making it easier on myself and to grow as much as I possibly can.
I must win the lottery. I covet a lovely greenhouse.And a cellar. And... Yep, I am weird. I rather have those things than diamonds or other useless items. I have plenty of shiny crystals to cover my "Oooo! Look! Something shiny!" needs. (grin)
