This is our second summer in our house. We moved in over Labor Day weekend in 2013 – at the end of the summer growing season. When we were looking for a home, we wanted a place with a back yard – I had done a pretty acceptable job of container gardening in the old condo, but wanted to expand my urban farm.Last year, we pulled out some trees and bushes that really closed off our backyard and I built a raised bed. That last part is pretty impressive, considering the mechanical aptitude in my family. That being said, I purchased the corner pieces and just had to insert the wood into the brackets. Pretty straight forward – even for me.
