    Thank you all so much for congrats & compliments. The chicken wire does keep the critters out, except for the occasional chipmunk that sneaks in for a tomato.
    I plan on putting more boxes in this spring. I took up canning and I can fit a lot more jars and a lot more boxes. :)

    Congrats on being farmer of the day. Your raised beds look terrific. I see that you have protection against neighborhood critters. So far I haven't had any issues with critters in my raised beds, but then I have a chain link fence around the yard.

    Have a great farmer of the day.

    Great idea on the grow boxes. I support turning the front yard into a productive zone.

    I too have containers on my front patio and five raised beds in my backyard.

    Have a great day.
