T is for tired

So I lost my mind and decided to destroy my backyard planter (that I apparently never uploaded a photo of).  The thing is my "backyard" is more of a 15'x20' place where the sun don't shine.  In 3 years I managed to grow lettuce, and that is about it.  In the picture below you can see my 3 strawberry plants  (I have at least 12 now) that I have yet to grow a more than 1 berry a year on, and an onion gone to bloom.



Once I finished destroying I used the lumber to create this beauty!

In the front of my house I get amazing sun for about 8 hours a day, so I'm hoping for some better growing this season.  This whole process took about 10 hours of labor, and my body is wrecked.
