What are you most proud of? That we didn't 'think' it to death. We got in there, got going, and had fun with this project. The end result exceeded our expectations.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? It's not for beginners, you do need basic carpentry skills.

Yes I too would use a good mix from bags. Weeds will still come up but they come via bird and the wind. The main thing to remember is to get the weeds before they spread via seed or new plantlets

I am so excited o say that tomorrow I will be making a trip to my local Home Depot to gather the supplies to make my very FIRST raised bed veggie/fruit garden! I will be using the square foot raised bed style of box that also incorporates a grid system so I takes the guess work out of planting! I also can not wait to start seeing the fruits of my labor, ha, ha!
