How TO and NOT TO build a vegetable garden

So this is where we’re gonna play another game of – What Not to Do-
Greg and I decided we have this large concrete pad, lets build a 4′ x 4’x by 3.5′ tall Vegetable Garden. It will cover the concrete remnants and be subjected to lots of sunlight. – Sweet –  {Spoiler Alert.. it wasn’t}

Raised Vegetable Garden Disaster

Since I’ve already spoiled the ending below is a photo collage of the construction:
Fence boards kreg jig-ed together for the sides:

While Greg did all that I stenciled the sides with an awesome logo by using a razor knife, a permanent marker, and some tape.

As I stenciled the logo, Greg was hard at work constructing our 4′ x 4′ monster vegetable garden.

So beautiful.. over memorial day weekend we loaded 279045903 lbs of Top Soil, Vegetable Soil and soon afterwards I over packed it with lots of vegetable seeds and seelings including: Tomatoes, Green Bell Peppers, Hot Peppers, Banana Peppers, Zucchini, Squash and Green Beans..

And then after 2 weeks of straight rain in the begining of June there was a splat.. Which my brother found so funny he caught pictures of me as I threw my temper tantrum.. mixed with complete laughter at our silly FAIL.
