Name: Olivia
Location: Portland, OR
Type of space: Garden
Tell us about your outdoor project and how you enjoy it: We built 3 4'X4' raised container gardens for vegetables and herbs. In one of the boxes we hooked 2 IKEA trellises together for the sugar snap peas to climb up. So far we've planted: roma tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, grape tomatoes, green onions, summer squash, radishes, jalapeno, green peppers, yellow peppers, basil, cilantro, parsley, cucumber, beets, buttercrunch lettuce, arugula, snow peas, and sweet peas!

...Here's a link to how much it's grown in 3 weeks. I can hardly wait to start picking things! Three of the pictures are a timelapse of Week 0-2 of planting.

How did you create it?
I have a step by step how to for building the container garden boxes here.
