The Beginning of Our Raised Vegetable Garden

  1. Diana says:

    that looks so awesome….thanks for sharing all the steps,….I am getting ready for my 12’x24′ Red Cow Cabin (I loved my red angus cattle)(hoping to get more soon) now that the drought seems to be going away! Anyway, the steps you took to level the ground are going to be the same steps I try and follow! Thanks for sharing!!! I am a one woman sh*t show( my husband has had a stroke) and I am trying to do most things on my own! Love your progress everything is wonderful!!!!

      Thank you! I have no doubt that your cabin will look great!! It’s a lot of work but definitely worth it in the long run.

    Are you guys still mapping out the layout of the raised beds as well? And are you planning on adding any type of ornamental or fruit trees at the edge of your property and the grassy field as a barrier? I live this project – you guys do the coolest stuff πŸ’ͺπŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ€—

    • Danelle Harvey says:

      We added some trees to the ends of our property as a barrier around the pond and they just haven’t done well at all, so we don’t have any plans for trees at the moment. Knowing us, it will eventually happen, though.

    This is going to be so pretty when you get all of the landscaping in. Can’t wait to see the finished product. I am so glad you two are doing all of this work as at 79 I am just thinking, “Oh, my aching back!”

    I am a fellow Ohioan trying to protect my garden from various critters. I think the rabbits might be able to get through the picket fence. We used metal hog panels and they squeezed right through. Going to try adding chicken wire around the bottom of the panels. Good luck!! I am really enjoying this part of your projects.

    • Danelle Harvey says:

      It is so hard to keep the animals out. We will see if it deters them at all.

    Loving all of this outside work! Can’t wait to see it all evolve to your wonderful cottagey & utilitarian style!
    Screen mesh stapled to your picket fence might help for the low-grounder critters; we always say, β€˜ the rabbits get the goodies close to the ground, the birds get the goods above ground, and we pray to have some of it left for us somewhere smack in the middle!’ Lol

    • Danelle Harvey says:

      We will see after this year how much we get to enjoy out of this garden. The fence should at least keep the deer from munching on the goodies.

  6. WoW !! WoW !! β€”OKβ€” now I need to take a nap after ALL that work … 😱
