Okay, you professional gardeners: this little start of a garden might make you laugh. But I’m a newbie at gardening and because we didn’t get to build our raised bed in time, I decided to container garden again this year.
Inexpensive DIY Container Garden
This is what it looked like at first: I bought two organic tomato plants at Mrs. Greens and planted them in large pots I used last year.
The perfect spot for our garden is next to our house in the back, where the water hose is.
A couple of days later I grabbed my DIY plant markers, the organic seeds I got from our awesome free seed library in our library, and went to town planting some more things and adding a the fence to our garden.
Then it was time to add a deer fence. We have deer in the backyard at night and they hadn’t discovered the tomato plants on the side of the house, but I knew I had to add a fence to our DIY container garden to keeps the critters out.
Then I had to figure out how to keep the mesh on the poles. Bread bag twist ties!
They are one of those items I never throw out, like the orange juice can tops I made my plant markers with.
Then I secured the deer fence with twist ties.
This is what it looked like finished.
