Similar to a planter build..
I don't know, is it ok to have treated lumber in contact with soil you are growing food in?and some treated 2x4's
According to the internet:I don't know, is it ok to have treated lumber in contact with soil you are growing food in?
If this is to plant potatoes in, why did you make it so tall?This and my recent bucket garden build are so far from what I normally build that it's almost funny, but since I built it I might as well share the simple build.
I used Western Red Cedar fence pickets from Lowe's and some treated 2x4's that were left over from the bucket garden stand build. The WRC fence pickets were 5 1/2" x 72" x 5/8" and were incredibly wet but it simply doesn't matter for something like this. Because I wanted to get the most out of each board I cut the WRC side board pieces to 23" so I could get three out of each picket.
We'll get some dirt and plant the first level of potatoes, then add dirt and another board and plant more potatoes, then keep repeating that until all the side boards are on. To harvest the potatoes I'll just remove the boards on two sides, maybe all of them - we'll see.
Anyway, a quick Friday morning project that took about 90 minutes and will hopefully yield some homegrown potatoes!

To have multiple layers of potatoes. Sort of like this but I didn't add a door -If this is to plant potatoes in, why did you make it so tall?
