I decided to build a potting bench this past week. It is my second bench, the first one I made from a 35 year old redwood gate and fence boards. This time I used some new redwood and some vintage finds from a local antique store. My son-in-law Brandon helped me cut the wood and loaned me his cordless drill, so putting the bench together was pretty quick. After finishing the potting bench, I planted my garden with roma tomatoes, herbs, and had several tomato plants pop up from last year.
