We’ve been working on a garden here at the Little House for three years in our DIYed raised garden bed.
The first year our baby veggies succumbed to the heat and drought. Last year, the tree-pocalypse took down the garden fence, allowing the puppies to get in and dig EVERYTHING up.
We were left with something that looked like this:
The fence was broken in several places, the old tomato cages were still hanging out, and a years worth of pecan leaves covered everything. The first step was to get rid of the tomato cages and leaves. The garden looked like the surface of the moon when we’d raked everything up with all the holes the dogs had dug.
In order to provide more of a barrier to the dogs and to help the fence stay nice and tight, we decided to add a top railing to the garden. We used pressure treated 1x6s (leftover from our deck repairs a year ago).
Oh, and we’ll probably be hanging the gutter gardens soon!
