So here is the veggie garden

I made the boxes out of scrap fence material from the tear down and replacement of my fence (seen in the photos below). They are both 4' X 6'.... big enough to hold some serious vegetation and yet narrow enough that the middle can be reached from both sides without having to step into the box.

Under the boxes, I lay down scrap weedblocking fabric. I ran irrigation to it by means of a buried garden hose. in the box between the two raised beds is where it terminates into the timer and the drip irrigation system.

All in all, I was pleased with it. The thing was not that hard to put together. Now I need to kill the lawn around them a bit for a border.
