One girl, a copy of Lord of the Rings, a few loose screws (especially those in my head eh?) …welcome to girl DIY.
The aim of the game was to build a raised bed so i can grow some fruit and veggies. Now just because everything i have ever grown has died in the past, doesn’t mean it will again does it?
Why a raised bed you might ask….well, they are low maintenance and easy to tend.
I would not be able to dig over the lawn and do a heap of lung-busting plot preparation, but a raised bed or two? I think I could handle that.
The bed I settled on is made from 100% recycled plastic and was delivered flatpack, requiring the used of a drill to assemble.
Me with a drill.
Now that’s scary.
Oh, and a sharp knife is always handy when doing a spot of DIY, as any girl knows…
So with the help of trusty Tolkien and Thomas Hardy… more for propping up capabilities than for reading…
the game was afoot…
and wonder of wonders…by the sweet perspiration of my brow, i made this….
Then i lined it and filled it with compost and voila!
The bed is 2m x 1m.
I have since taken ownership of two smaller beds which i assembled without the use of a drill or a sharp kitchen knife, you’ll be pleased to know.
And all my digits remain intact.
More gardening posts will follow as i make my first forray into growing my own fruit and veg, hope you’ll find them mildly entertaining and even possibly informative and most definately humourous.
Have a great weekend!
