Hello All, I just want to post a few pictures of the new garden bed. It is going to be mainly for Peppers (Bells, Banana, and Jalapeno). It is 2 X 8 with Cedar fence boards on the bottom. Why the Cedar boards? Well, I do not have to Trim around the box when I cut grass, I can just use the lawnmower. It also stops weeds from growing up under the side boards and into my garden. In the past I have bad a case of Dollar weed and this method works well to stop it. Lastly, it is easy to mix the MM in the bed itself as it has a hard wooden bottom. There is a small space between the cedar fence boards to let water out but not the MM.

I try to give back to nature and let a few plants go to flower for the Bees. While I was making this bed I saw 2 Bees on a Broccoli plant that I let go to flower. I do this in hopes that they will come back during the Summer. Last few years I see this type of Bee more in the Winter than in the Summer.

I like that skirted box very much! Did you have to cut the fencing or did it come that size?

CC, It is a 6 foot Cedar fence board that I cut in half. It makes mowing the lawn so much easier since I do not have to trim around every box. It keeps the weeds out very well and there is no weed barrier material to deal with or replace.

Thanks,

Jimmy, Step away from the hammer and saw . . . . You have enough beds! As if there is such a thing.
