all in all, we're really pleased with how the project turned out. i wish i would have had my camera with me while we were building this, but i didn't, so here are a few pictures that we snapped on ryan's phone of the process . . .
^along the back of the garden, we planted cherry tomatoes, san marzano tomatoes, zucchini, and bok choy. the front row has parsley, basil, rosemary, peppers, and lettuce. in order to keep the neighborhood critters out, we put six stakes around the edges and covered the garden with flexible bird netting. (so far it has actually kept the birds, bunnies, squirrels, and chipmunks out!) we're really looking forward to enjoying the veggies and herbs from our new raised garden this summer!^
