First Commissioned Raised Bed

Last weekend I put together my first commissioned raised bed. It was a custom L-shaped design, using 2x8 and 2x6 Douglas Fir. I ended up deciding to pocket hole all the screws with my kreg-jig, so there are no visible connections. Although it was very hot and humid, I enjoyed putting it together with my dad who happened to be in town visiting.

Custom Raised Bed

"L" Shaped Raised Bed

If anyone is interested in one, and lives nearby, I can make this for $140. I will follow-up with pictures of the finished raised bed, once it is installed.

Harvesting Sugar Snap Peas

During the halftine of the Italy vs. England World Cup game the kids and I went outside to pick sugar snap peas for our Italian themed dinner.

The Garden in Early June

Our garden is coming along in early June. The cucumber and butternut squash is starting to climb the new trellis I built this year.
