In my prior post about building a garden box I went thought the steps as to how I made the box. I decided to use starts for my garden this year for all except carrots because I was not so sure about seeds. After a lot of planning and talking we decided to plant the following items.
Box 4 & 5
I started on our patio, We have TONS of misquotes in our area and they love me. I do anything and everything to keep them away, between Tiki Torches with Bite Fighter, at least one or two bottles of off and as many herbs that will keep them away.
I did lots of research and found some of the best Herbs for keeping misquotes away are
So I used some pots we got a few months ago for a killer deal ($10 each for awesome urns) and some others we already had and placed them on our patio and then added many more to garden boxes
I also got 2 raspberry bushes, I chose to go with THORN-LESS, Since we have a basketball hoop just off from where I want to put them, I don't want thorns in basketballs or in little boy's hands.
