Last year we set out to build our on raised beds and start our very own vegetable garden. For a days worth of work, $250 in materials and some seeds you can grow yourself a garden providing some savings, peace of mind knowing your veggies are organic, sense of pride growing your own, priceless fun, adventures and memories to last a lifetime.
