Building Planter Boxes for My Vegetable Greenhouse

As you all know, I am a very serious gardener, and am always interested in finding different ways to improve the productivity of the gardens at my farm.

This winter, I decided to build and install wooden garden boxes to fit the entire length of my vegetable greenhouse. These boxes will keep the space tidy and provide protection for those plants that may otherwise get trampled. Once complete, the boxes will be filled to the top with soil, creating raised beds that can be maintained more easily and planted more intensively. I recently purchased all the lumber for this project - dozens of long oakwood boards. Various species of oakwood are commonly used to make household furniture and other pieces because of its appealing look and sturdy composition. Once they arrived at the farm, my outdoor grounds crew went to work.

Here are some photos - enjoy.
