Here is an update on my garden.
So how were my garden boxes you ask? They were excellent. I did not get any animals eating my plants and the organic soil helped a lot of my fruits and vegetables flourish. I would definitely recommend using garden boxes. Another benefit of the garden box is it makes it much easier to harvest your food without hurting your back. Its not on the ground so you don't have to bend over as much.
Here is some of the stuff I got this summer.
Tomatoes: cherry, yellow boy, beef steak, grape, and roma
Lettuce: red, green, romaine and butter
