George and I want to grow more goodness in our garden! We discussed how to do this, and decided on creating some raised beds. The first will go right where this row of dead bushes is.
We transplanted the bushes from a friend’s yard. We hoped they would screen the beehives a bit and protect that area from the rest of the yard. Well, the bushes did not survive the transplant. I have since ripped them out, and now we have a rectangle of dirt where they were. It’s the perfect place for our first raised bed!
Since we knew this project would take a lot of wood, we decided to make it out of pallets. This would be cheaper, and environmentally friendly since we were reusing. I will note that it was a pain to take apart the pallets. This project was a bit more manual labor than many of our projects.
