Garden Bed Planning is Tough...
Last week I found the number for THE MASTER GARDENER PLANT CLINIC AND RESOURCE CENTER Through Spokane County Extension on the Washington State University Website page. I got a hold of a master gardener named Carrol on the phone... She says we have a short growing season here in Spokane and raised beds are a really good way to go... She also said I probably wont need to do the 30$ soil testing if I do go with raised beds. It doesn't sound like I will need to find out if there are lines under the ground with raised beds... However raised beds would be quite an investment. The master gardener lady Carrol also told me there is an open house at their office with a raised bed exhibit but it's not until the last Saturday of the month April 28th and I am don't think I can wait that long... For the past few weeks I have been asking around the gardening groups about raised beds and trying to find out as much info I can on raised beds, mulch gardening, lasagna gardening, and links to info. Here is some of what I found:
