Enclosed Vegetable Garden
When we bought our new house this summer, we inherited this vegetable garden in the backyard. At least I THOUGHT it was a vegetable garden until one of the kids who lives behind us told us that the previous owner actually kept rabbits in there. If it can keep the bunnies in, it can keep the bunnies out, right?!
The problem is, well, I'm sure you can see what the problem is. The thing is just downright fugly and overgrown. Believe it or not, I actually removed all of the overgrowth not too long ago. Some of the wood is rotting and pulling away from the gate. The chicken wire is in pretty good shape though. I want to fix it up and make it look pretty so that it can hold vegetables next year and actually look like it belongs in the yard. I have visions of putting down stone or mulch over the entire fenced in area and building raised beds, and perhaps having some plants grow over the sides of the chicken wire. However, the enclosure is only 9 1/2 x 9 1/2 feet, so I feel like my visions are a little too ambitious. So, if you inherited this thing in your backyard, what would you do with it?
