Raised Vegetable Gardening in the Monarch Garden Box

Monarch Garden BoxI have boatloads of space for vegetable gardening, and can easily expand if I need to.  But if you’ve got a small space, you can still plant vegetables and herbs in raised beds, boxes and containers–even in the desert!

A friend just pointed me to the Monarch Garden Box, a really great idea for a small space.  Made locally here in Arizona, these boxes stand around 3 feet high, making them easy to work in.  They’re generously sized at 4′ x 2′ with a 12″ depth and they’re made from pest- and rot-resistant redwood.  I believe they’re also on wheels so you can easily move them around.  (Or wheel it around the neighborhood to show off your prized veggies!)

Add some good quality soil and, with some good planning, you can get more than a few plants in these guys for a steady supply of fresh stuff!
