Last week, Don and Ursula invited me to their house in Cedar Park for a consultation. Don, Ursula and their two daughters recently moved to our area from Seattle and were interested in building a raised vegetable garden bed. During the consultation, we discussed many things including the best location for their garden, materials to use for outlining their beds, good soils and compost, how to build it and when to plant. They were inspired by Eastside Cafe’s Garden and liked the idea of using cinder blocks to build a raised bed.
I knew they were anxious to get going, but I didn’t realize how quickly they would spring into action! A few days after my visit, I received these pictures of their garden. Don and Ursula designed and built this garden themselves and I am proud to have been a part of their planning! Way to go, Don and Ursula!
