Building a Grow Box

Last week I told you about the Mittleider Gardening Method. Now, you obviously don’t have to do this or try it, but planting in grow boxes or raised beds is a great way to get more produce in limited space and it’s easier on your back.

So, here’s one way to build a grow box. Even if it’s too late to start a garden this year, you can start one this fall by building your boxes, prepping the areas, and even getting your seeds ready so you can plant late winter or early spring. My friend Alysia covers her grow boxes with heavy plastic in the winter and has her own green house.

Hers is framed out with fencing materials that also make it easier to protect the plants and help the plants grow.

So, here’s a quick video on how to make your own grow box. There are other videos and instructions out there, I just like this guy, the LDS Prepper. (
