    Hello Do it on a dime my husband and I saw your video and it inspired us to make a box garden also , we’ve made the box and put the land scraping fabric on it now we have to fill it with soil, my question is how much soil did you use to fill it in, we plan on using big bags of potting soil so how many bags would you recommend . Thank you so much for the video and the inspiration we are so excited to start planting

    You are awesome! Thanks for the tips. I love gardening but I’m lousy at it. I live in an apartment and so I try to grow my plants in containers but it never works out. Can I use the same combination for my soil?

  22. Shelly S on October 21, 2018 at 9:12 am

  31. Erica Waymaster on October 21, 2018 at 9:26 am

    We have raised beds this year and we had our first salad out of it yesterday. Lettuce is so very easy to grow in these beds as well. πŸ™‚ .

  32. Pera Ventura on October 21, 2018 at 9:26 am

    Love your videos Thank you so much .How often You fertilize your vegetables?

  33. Do It On A Dime on October 21, 2018 at 9:27 am

    Quick tips for those wanting to SAVE! Dollar Tree sells landscape fabric and it’s just perfect for this. Also, if you don’t want your crop stolen by pesky birds or cats, get Dollar Tree plastic snakes and string them on trellises or put in your ferns. It works!! Birds won’t go near them and your tomatoes can stay on the vine to ripen πŸ…πŸ

  34. Craft Loving Mommy on October 21, 2018 at 9:29 am

  38. r a on October 21, 2018 at 9:30 am

    Any experts have tips on shade? I don’t have much shade at all until probably 4pm and I live in super hot Houston. It’s very hard to find a place that won’t be totally scorched all day. we don’t have any trees so can’t utilize that

  42. Monique Darquea on October 21, 2018 at 9:33 am

    Love this idea…..I have a very small back yard maybe 20×20, so this is a perfect solution. Thanks for breaking down all the steps….you make complicated things seem so much more doable. πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ˜œπŸ‘πŸΌ
