Got the wood for my beds... yeeha!
OK so I have no SFG as of yet, but I just got the wood for my beds yesterday! Talk about a score - it won't be trly "SFG" since the beds won't be even feet but the price I couldn't pass up. I got 130 1x6 cedar boards that are 2.5' long plus 70 cedar stakes to build them with, delivered, for $75. Craigslist rules! So I'll basically be able to have around 185 square feet with the wood that I got... the boards are really nice and I am super excited.
Now, if I could only get the approval from my landlord to put in the garden... lol. They gave me a verbal "Yeah that would probably be ok" but I haven't gotten an official response yet. I don't want to start building the beds until I get that official response...
So I guess I'll just start dreaming up what I'll be planting next year. Since I'm 8 months pregnant and it's so late in the year I don't think I'll do much growing at this point, though I'll probably do garlic in the fall.
It's going to be kind of interesting to figure out the spacing for those extra half-foot blocks - a couple of my beds will be 7.5x3.75 so the block sizes will be different :) But at that price, I just couldn't pass it up.
Anyway I am just really excited so I wanted to post about it! lol
