Garden Beds


One down, one to go!  In between rainy afternoons I put this garden bed together, just need to add some center supports.  I’ll have two – both will be 4’x8′ and 12″ deep.  I figured l should start with these and see how good my gardening skills are, lol.  After reading a ton of garden bed ideas on Pinterest, I decided to go with Douglas Fir, 2″x6″x8′ boards – 6 boards for each bed.  It freaked me out a bit reading on Pinterest how the pressure treated wood has chemicals and could leach into your soil so I went with untreated wood (HD says the pt wood is fine for garden beds).  It won’t last as long as PT wood but I figured I might be “done” with gardening by the time they rot, lol or I’ll change my mind and turn the garden area into a chicken coop, we’ll see.
