SOLD OUT – $9.99 & FREE shipping – 4ft x 4ft Raised Garden Bed July 14, 2010

UPDATE: Wow! That went fast. As of this morning, Home Depot was still accepting orders but they’ve since stopped (as of 1:30pm CST 7/14/10). Sorry, all! Great deals go fast… Thanks to Wendy for letting me know!

In my backyard I have a garden with two wonderful raised beds. I love being able to just dash out the backdoor, mid-recipe, and pick my own herbs! This year we added lemon thyme to the mix. Our raised beds were lovingly made by my husband and son, and it took quite a bit of time and planning. SAVE YOURSELF the headache! Here is a sweet deal for raised garden bed structures that I’ve seen with my own eyes (my neighbors have them) — and they’re AWESOME!

Regularly $29.99, Home Depot has their 4ft x 4ft Raised Garden Beds on sale for just $9.99 with FREE SHIPPING! Sure, they’re on back order at the moment, but place your order and get in line. These are sturdy, visually appealing, and EASY to use.

So, what are you going to grow? Tomatoes? Fall lettuce? Flowers? Herbs? Melons! Here’s a tip: If you’re not able to get outside to water your garden regularly, or if you’re someone who is likely to forget, run a hose to your raised bed and attach a soaker hose. Plug in an easy hose timer and you’re all set!
