Our family wanted to build a new garden with raised beds this year. We had a lot of people who were willing to help us do it, but I wanted to prove it was a super EASY and QUICK weekend project that required no more than two people to accomplish. Here is our step by step raised garden beds DIY!
We planted our family garden in April, and I wanted to give it a little time, so I can quickly post an update, which will be posted tomorrow.
We built these beds in one weekend, and each box took on average an hour each, maybe a little more for the first one as this was our first time. It was really nice time spent with my husband, while the kids played in the yard behind us. The kids were incredibly involved in helping plant the vegetables, and we have all had so much fun harvesting fruits and veggies from the garden for dinner. It’s been fun going out almost every afternoon to check the garden and play together. However, I didn’t know how much it meant to my older son until about a week ago when his speech therapist asked us, “Does your family have this huge, incredible garden in your backyard? Your son always just wants to talk about all of the many things you’ve planted!” It was a wonderful surprise to hear that he is excited about the garden!
