This herb garden is a small planter off my back deck. I'm experimenting with something called "square foot gardening." I made the frame, and yes, I'm aware the pine lumber won't hold up long but I'm not committed to this way of gardening long term until I see how it goes - so the pine works for me. The "soil" in the box is a mixture of compost, vermiculite, and peat moss and I didn't dig up the grass before putting it down, the planter is set on a big piece of cardboard over the grass. The box is sectioned off into 1 foot square areas for planting.
As of tonight, the garden is tilled and planted. I really hope things grow.
