Before and After: My Garden's Blooming!

Before and After: My Garden's Blooming!

A while ago, I showed you how to build a garden box and plant it.

Here's how my garden first looked after I planted seeds and seedlings in it.

It's definitely taking off! I had to add a trellis to support some vining cucumbers and peas, and will have to add more supports for my vining plants soon.


While this garden may look chaotic, I've found that planting a variety of veggies and herbs and flowers in one space has a number of advantages. First, you can group more plants into a small space, depending on whether they're growing up (peas) out (squash) or down (beets). Also, by mixing up plants, there's less of a chance of them all getting attacked by insects or a disease. And finally, when I pull up a row of beets or cut off a head of lettuce, I can immediately put in another seedling or row of seeds to replace that part of the garden that's been used.
