I've begun a new hobby.. veggie gardening. I've tried to grow things before but it would just die. This time however, I'm making sure it thrives!
It all started from a little basil plant I purchased one day. The moment I used its fresh leaves for a recipe I was hooked! The taste was amazing. There is just nothing better than fresh, local stuff! Buying the wood and dirt was the easy part especially since I had my boyfriend make the bed for me! It was actually quite easy and cheap. Those pre-made beds can be a bit too expensive... make it a project and you'll save tons of money and have fun doing it!
Just take a look at mine... The only hard part was choosing what to grow!
After much hard work... we finally got it up and ready... i planted onions, peppers, tomatoes, oregano, mint, rosemary... I'm so happy! If you want to see the construction of the bed, just let me know I have tons of pics!
If you need some advice or help in making a bed of your own, let me know! George can make one for you too! I'm all for helping you get the best eats-- even if its from your own backyard!
