My First Garden!

My first gardening experience has officially begun! I planted my starter seeds today! See…

Our backyard is rather small and nicely landscaped so I didn’t think I really had a place for a big garden. Well, it turns out, that you don’t need a ton of space. Enter the Square Foot Garden

Have you heard of it? Basically you make a 4′ by 4′ box and you divided the box into 16 squares. You then plant in the squares based on the spacing of what you want to grow. I thought for my first attempt this year I would plant, broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, yellow onions, swiss chard, spinach, bell peppers, and some flowers. If you want to know more about how the Square Foot Garden works, go HERE.

Starter seeds are planted and now we wait. In the next few days I am going to start building my box. I will keep you updated on my progress…

Have you ever tried the Square Foot Garden method? What did you like or dislike about it??
