Square Foot Gardening

One of my favorite techniques for gardening is called square foot gardening.
It involves less weeding and makes your garden a lot easier to maintain.
According the squarefootgardening.org you can grow 100% of the crop in 20% of the space of a conventional garden laid out in rows.
To make your square foot garden, you start with a 4X4 foot square, divide it into 12 sq-ft grids and plant in each of those squares, like the example above.
Planning your garden is an important step in the gardening process.
Success in planning is a plan for success!
It's a fun hobby, kids enjoy it, AND it's good for you.
