Faerie Garden
I've always loved faeries, and found some really cute plants at a local nursery i thought would look really cute in a faerie garden! My step-father built me a simple wooden frame, which we lined with screen, filled with dirt and then I painted!

Added a little house, some crystals, glitter in the dirt, a faeries welcome sign and lots of love! Give it a try and welcome a little more magic into your life!

This is cute, I planted a bunch of stuff recently in my "garden" some of it grew but then died shortly there after. Edging was a pain bc I didn't have a box like you have. So you have 4 walls and just screen on the bottom not wood right, so it can drain?

Also what grows best for you ? It looks like cabbage and something else.
I tried to grow basil,tomatoes, watermellon, cucumber, radishes...I think and gourd.

basil and tomatoes died early, watermelon & cucumber lasted for a while with plants that had yellow flowers, one baseball sized watermellon even grew but the dog we were pet-sitting destroyed the remainder of my garden and killed the watermellon. A few gourds grew but died prematurely.

I'm going to try this gardening thing one more time but I'm going to make a box like yours with screen
Do you think it'd be okay to leave it directly on the ground or should I elevate it w/ legs? Once stuff starts growing I'm going to turn it into a Fairy-topia

We used to do these as kids! What a blast from the past. I might have to take up fairy gardening again lol.
