Garden design contest
This year’s Garden2Blog 2012 Event with 20 of my closest blogger friends was SO FUN. One of the things we all did together was enter a garden design contest utilizing a raised 4 X 4 foot planting bed. I designed a shade vegetable garden with strong vitamin rich plants to help feed a family during our down economy. I utilized the techniques I have used in my own full shade garden at home. I am SO excited because it was a winner! WOOT!
There were so many good ideas, the Bonnie team chose four winners. All the winners had a professionally illustrated vision of their garden design permanently placed on the Bonnie website to help gardeners learn helpful tips. Here is a link to my winning design and the details for planting it – http://bonnieplants.com/library/vegetables-for-the-shade-4-x-4-foot-garden.
