Just outside the front door, an assortment of produce is found growing in a custom-built raised bed garden. This is the first time ever that Blog Cabin has incorporated a garden into the design.

Wooden garden beds

Garden beds are constructed from 4x6 cedar posts and mulched walkways offer easy access to produce. Plants, including eggplants, marigolds, Thai basil, rosemary and beans, provide a bounty of beauty and nourishment.

What is a garden without tomatoes? These Roma tomatoes are smaller and meatier, perfect for making marinara sauce or gourmet ketchups.

"We wanted to make sure this year's winner could take advantage of how amazing the soil and growing conditions are here," says The House Counselor Laurie March.

Young pepper plant

Peppers, in green and red varieties, are warm-weather crops that provide a great source of Vitamin C.
