I have plans to continue making cedar for the outdoors by making garden boxes on either side of the ramp that leads into my storage shed. I’m the only one that loves fresh vegetables; so, I’ll have a small space, that will no longer have to be mowed!, and instead have a small tomato garden just to satisfy my cravings this summer.
I’m going to continue my flower beds and add cedar chips as mulch. After that I plan to pursue more outdoor cedar furniture by designing deck end tables, picnic table and chairs, and storage for my waterhose.
I’m still not done indoors. I want to have a cedar jewerly armoire, bookcases, desk and chair, and several quilt/shelf racks to hang on the wall.
If anyone knows a great place to get more ideas on different styles of cedar used to complete my quest for cedar – just reply!

And of course you need to build a cedar “Hope” chest.

I found container gardening to be very limiting. Raised beds will give a lot more production if you have the room. Good luck and welcome to LJ!!
