Garden Beds and Water Catchment

Got up bright and early and headed off to Lowe's. Best time to go is opening time on a Sunday morn. We hee-hawed around inside for half hour or more, grabbed supplies and out we went. No muss. No fuss.

I think I have enough manure and dirt for one more smaller bed. Maybe two. Should be plenty. If not, they have more. Also, picked up a 32 gallon trash can for water catchment off the shop roof. Once it warms up a little bit more, I'll install it. Don't want it to freeze! 

I turned the grass over with a shovel and lined the outer frame with cardboard. These stand 6 inches high. If it turns out I need more, I'll had another board. Should be fine for what I'm growing.


  1. I’ve been trying to comment on several post but when I click over from my email it doesn’t post them. Fickle internet.
    Did you put cardboard under all of it or just the edges? Looks great.


Thanks for stopping by. I like comments. Let me hear what you have to say.
