The Driving Force
But with the monthly food bill being higher than both vehicle payments combined, it was time to reconsider. We just moved into our new house and have worked on several other home improvement projects, so building our own garden seemed like a natural progression. The dilemma? Our new house sits on a lot with quite a bit of sandstone and with large 5-acre lots behind us, the backyard is pretty wind-blown, leaving the soil in bad need of reconditioning. So, rather than spend the money tilling, getting soil test kits, and adding nutrients to the ground, we'll instead build a raised garden bed and control it ourselves.
So, we put our heads together and tried to come up with a plan that will give us plenty of usable garden space but not break the bank. After all, what's the point in saving money on groceries if you're going to turn around and spend even more on your own garden?
