DIY Installing Raised Beds | Urban Vegetable Garden

Last week Zuki posted on 
how to construct the raised planters...


I had been mulling over doing this for a few years.  Our front lawn is our south side and the best growing area on our property, and we really need to take full advantage of every speck of sun we can get here in Newfoundland.  Yet I didn't want to take away from the street appeal.

This year I decided to take the plunge and tear up the front garden for food plants, even though I actually enjoy mowing grass, yup really - I do :) (I will keep some around just for that pleasure), fresh food is most important to me.  Having a very short growing season and few local organic farmers, most of our food is imported from quite a distance.  Growing our own was a struggle on the north wooded side of our property.  So here we go...Tearing up our lawn for the planters...

Now to build and install the arbor, trellis, pretty up the landscape and stain the boxes...Oh yea! And fill with food of course :D
