A Kids’ Organic Kitchen Window Garden

The following garden was a fun one designed by Bohemian Bounty for a family in southwest Austin. It features a raised bed, 3 feet by 10 feet. The challenge came in accounting for the slope in the yard, which changes about one inch per foot. Two sets of 6 inch boards were installed to bring the bed close to level and protect the soil from washing away during heavy rains in the yard.

There were also two mini-gardens placed along the house for blackberries, flowers and asparagus. Both will produce for many years to come with little maintenance.

The kids did an awesome job planting strawberries and lots of seeds. I don’t think Bohemian Bounty has worked with two more attentive children. These veggies will not suffer from a lack of attention as the garden can be seen from the adjacent kitchen window.
