Modified to fit an Earthbox and mounted to a bench

I took the design of the planter and stretched it to accomodate an "Earthbox" (which is 29 x 13.5x 11 inches) to see if I could boost the results of my little garden. Both planters were made the same size so that if I'd like, next season ,I can use two Earthboxes.

The bench was built to keep out bunnies, our Husky, give us a place to put down the bowl when picking from the garden and lastly to give Georgia a place to climb up and get a better view or help. It is made using some treated 2x6's for legs aand support and untreated 2x4's for the actual benchtop.

I'll add a protective finish (and missing trim on both ends) to the bench part later this week when I have some toddler free time at home :)
