This weekend I borrowed a friend’s circular saw (Thanks, Trey!) and finally executed my plan for a Z-shaped raised garden bed. I bought four 8 ft by 12 in cedar boards, which I cut into eight pieces:
It took about 35 bags of top soil and compost (40 lbs bags) to fill the bed. We’re late for the spring planting but we’ll be ready for fall. In the meantime, we’ll plant a bunch of basil so we can have a pesto summer.
