Fresh organic vegetables in a Gardner's hands.

Summer is here which means it’s prime time for growing your own produce! June is National Fruit and Vegetable Month - the perfect time to start your own fruit and veggie garden. The best way to ensure that your plants grow strong and healthy is by providing optimal conditions for them to grow in. Building a vegetable garden box with a support wall is a great option for getting started. Not only will you be able to control the soil conditions better, but you’ll also have more control over the way that your vegetables grow.

While it may sound like a daunting task, building a garden box doesn’t have to be difficult. In fact, you’ll be able to get started right away with this project perfectly suited for your backyard. Use this resource to learn how to build a raised garden bed in just a few steps. With the right wood, this garden bed will add character and interest to your backyard, all the while serving a functional purpose. We recommend using any of our Vintage Harvest reclaimed wood box kits for a rustic and natural look. 

Once the garden bed itself is built, it’s necessary to have some sort of support for your plants to latch onto and grow taller. Tomato plants, for example, should be provided with a stake, wire, or trellis so that they’re able to get adequate sunlight and produce large fruits. This is where the wooden wall, also known as a trellis, comes in. Follow the steps here to build the trellis and to learn how to attach it to your planter box. The leftover wood from your Vintage Harvest lumber kit is ideal to use for this wooden trellis project.
