House & Garden

Got wood?

We sure do!

We have decking planks for the top of the deck; a bunch of 6x2 for building deck frames; the deck frame being worked on; big, big chunks of untreated hardwood for an as-yet undisclosed use; smaller chunks of 'pre-aged' untreated hardwood (i.e. ex-display from the garden centre.)

The latter has now been used to build a raised bed for me to grow vegetables in. It's already proven itself in that Kita no longer runs over that patch of ground!

I love it:

The back is made of treated offcuts of 6x2 from building the deck; it will prevent the earth that's going to be put in there from rotting the fence.

That's gonna need a lot of earth, though:

This is looking good Otter! and I'm glad this is going to be one part of the garden that her Kitaness cannot destroy by romping all over it :-)

It all looks good. When you dig out your patio by the back door can you use that soil to fill up your new veggie bed?

That's not wood.

This is wood
