Our community has a Farmer’s Market every Friday night during the Spring and Summer months. We headed out there several weeks back and found some great Strawberry plants. I was so excited! They were loaded with Strawberries. Heading back to the car, we were munching on these yummy treats. These will be so fun and delicious to enjoy in the years to come!
Next issue though…where to put them. My raised beds are full so I thought it would be nice to make some flower boxes for my deck and put them there for easy access.
I’m getting kinda handy with My Better Half’s power tools so I cut out these boxes all by myself.
I put them together on my own too. Not without injury, however. Let me just say…don’t touch a drill bit as soon as it comes out of the wood…BIG mistake!!!
Then I found some old cedar in my lumber pile to make a bottom for the boxes. and used old recycled lumber and screws we had on hand for the rest, so the boxes didn’t cost a cent.
My Princess painted them after I taped them off.
The stripes add a nice whimsical look to the deck. I’m working on two more of these to throw some lettuce seeds in and maybe some green onions. YUM…don’t you love summer!?
