Easy does it!
If you've been thinking that you might want to try a small vegetable garden in your yard, but have been overwhelmed with the idea of building a raised bed yourself, then this is a great time of the year to start looking at the local warehouse stores for simple kits that you can buy and put together without a carpentry degree. For instance, I happened to be at Costco this morning and they are selling a 4x4 raised garden bed with a weather shield for $99. That's it. It is made of plastic, looks decent and will give you an idea whether gardening is for you with a minimal investment. It might be worth checking out. Then, when the time comes, give me a call and I will share with you a great soil formula to fill the bed with that will give you a good start on growing healthy, hearty plants.
