East Side Cafe by far has the most amazing garden in Austin, Texas. The garden itself is over 1/3 of an acre and is surrounded by large pecan trees. Dorsey and Elaine, the owners of East Side Cafe, are expert gardeners and all it takes is a drive by to see the beauty and genius behind it.

Be sure to stop by for a garden visit or better yet, eat at East Side Cafe and you will enjoy both the wonderful garden and a delicious meal.

I found that the video offered a straight forward view of how to set up a square foot garden. I would have liked to have seen the part where the drill bit was changed to a screwdriver bit but it was easily figured out without actual footage.

I thought the video was very clear as to how to implement the SQF process. She made it look so easy that I am confident that I can do it. My only "gripe" is that the video mentions a worksheet available on their website which I could not locate. I emailed them a few days back and haven't heard back from them.

The worksheet would be useful but I can survive without it. The video is well done.
