Potatoe Box

My hubby first measured the size of the potatoe box and marked the ground with sticks. If you look closely at the second picture, you can see that he cut the turf so he could make them into rolls. He had decided to use it in the yard later to fill in wholes and make the ground more level in places.

He talked to the neighbors and found a farmer with his own saw mill in our area. He purchased and transported the boards that he needed home with the help of a neighbor who had a truck.Then the hard work began. He screwed the boards together. He hammered stakes into the ground to hold the boards in place. Then he screwed the stakes to the boards.

We have a hard rocky thin layer of top soil, then clay and in places bedrock.That is probably why this pasture is used for grazing land instead of crops. We wanted the garden close to the house which is why this spot was chosen. He wanted the dirt scooped out, so that we could fill it with good rich soil and manure. We knew then our garden would thrive in it. It took a lot more dirt than we thought to fill it up
