My brother-in-law, Josh, made the beautiful boxes out of the cedar that he cut and planed himself. They smell so good and look so pretty.
Jeremy and I mixed up my Mel's Mix dirt and put it in. I got the grids cut to size and installed them. The longest task was making these chicken wire cages, but all of my neighbors with gardens said we would have to do something to keep out the animals.
Mel suggests soaking plants and seeds before planting them and also leaving sun-warmed water out for watering. So that's what I did.
I know it is a little early but I planted some flower seeds, cilantro, strawberries, and banana peppers.
You can't see it in these pictures, but we also have started a compost pile behind the well. I feel like I need to take a class on composting to make sure I am doing it right.
I can't wait to see what we produce!
