Wow, Shocked am I ever jealous. That is such a great looking garden camprn and thanks for sharing your truly inspirational pictures. Question: In the first pic, the one of the boxes where you're removing the grass, what sized lumber did you use? It appears to be 2"x10" or maybe 2"x12"

You should be able to find those bags of dried beans at your local
grocery store. Maybe in the soup aisle or the ethnic food area.

2x8x8' pine planks (cut in half to make the 4x4 boxes). And thanks for the compliment! What a Face

Talk about a huge DUH! moment. I've got a bag of 15 Bean in the pantry and NEVER thought about growing them.
