With the growing season in Missouri in full swing, it’s time to plant our perennial herb garden. It’s one of the three goals we have for the homestead.
With a bit of elbow grease and ingenuity, Emma helps us check off the first of three big to-do’s for the homestead this year. Check out what she does with a couple of window wells she picked up from our local hardware store to build the easiest DIY raised beds. You’ve got to see it to believe it.
Raised Bed Materials:
4 galvanized window wells, 37″ x 12″
4 3/8 bolts with hex heads
4 3/8 hex nuts
1 9’x12′ 1 mil clear plastic drop cloth (liner)
Raised Bed Fill Materials:
6 15-lb bags of top soil
4 50-lb bags of Black Kow Organic Composted Manure
More to the Story:
As part of a challenge, started by our friend Heather from Bear Bottom Acres, we set three goals to accomplish on the homestead for the year 2020. 1) Grow one thing to feed our family for the entire year, 2) Make one thing your family usually buys at the store, and 3) Try growing one new thing. Our new perennial herb garden will help us accomplish the first goal. While we won’t be ‘feeding’ our family with these herbs directly, they’ll be used in the kitchen to season most of our food and to make herbal teas that are yummy and healing.
