Building a Raised Garden Bed

Let the growing games begin!

This has been a thought in my mind for a few years.  After taking in gardening content for the purposes of growing food, attending classes, and stalking the amazing gardeners of Instagram, I am finally jumping out there with what I know to see what happens.

I ordered this raised garden bed on Amazon.  It was super easy to put together.  If I can harvest just one thing that is edible, I will be a happy woman.

As mentioned, I purchased this garden bed from Amazon.  This raised bed is not available directly through Amazon anymore, but there are a ton of options to choose from.

The pieces were packaged nice and secure.  Every piece was cut precisely, to allow the groves to slide into place.  There are no tools required to build the actual box.  You will only need a screwdriver to screw in the screws that attach to the decorative pieces on each corner of the raised bed.  I used a battery pack drill to do this, easy, but you can use a hand screwdriver with a little elbow grease.

The total build time took 22 minutes, from start to finish.  I built it alone, in my dining room.  No help is required.

This bed seems to be a great product and it gathers great reviews.  I paid $99.  The current cost of this specific raised bed at the time of this post is, $109.

This is where you can order the garden bed directly:

Added bonus: Free shipping, no minimum.

Do you have a home garden?  If so, what are you currently growing?  If not, what would you like to see me grow in my garden?

I hope you follow me along this journey.
