Building a raised garden bed for our vegetables!

Our cedar wood raised beds were very pretty, but didn't get enough full sun for our vegetables to thrive. We decided to move the beds for better sunlight, but found the cedar wood had been feasted on by termites. So...this time my husband built a large raised bed using cobbled paver stones. Our vegetables love it! I do too...even though it was probably the area where my dream pool would have gone! Hah! (You can read all the details on how this was built by clicking on my blog post link below.)
