For those who know me, I’m know as the basil whisperer. I can grow basil like it’s my full time job. Except it isn’t. Which is a shame because basil never sends me meeting requests for 4 p.m. on a Friday.
So one day I decided to break their little dog hearts and build an enclosed garden (drip irrigation to come later). Since I’m
cheap frugal, I upcycled my existing raised beds and tried to use as much lumber that I had on hand. In the end I bought three 4x4x8 posts, chicken wire (so much chicken wire), a staple gun (tools!), a gate kit, and these magical screws that go through lumber like buttah.
The project took me most of the day. It could have been less had I bought those screws sooner. Live and learn.
I added pea gravel in the middle to keep it from getting muddy and built a gate. You read that right. I. Built. A. Gate. Bam!
The end result is something very Pinteresting. Except it’s in my yard and I didn’t eff it up.
And the basil?
