Square Foot Gardening. I'm so excited.

Today I started my square foot garden! This book is awesome.
April 26th was my birthday and my sister lent me her copy of this book and bought me a kit to build my own square foot garden. I had to buy the special mixture (mel's mix) of compost, vermiculite and peat moss. Today I got the square foot kit put together, attached weed paper to the bottom and  mixed all the soil up.

Later this week I will go and buy all the plants I want to put in my garden. I'm amazed at how much you can actually plant in this four by four square. If all goes according to plan, I will have enough for a full salad everyday of the summer! Totally amazing.

The best part about the square foot garden is that you can use the same soil year after year. You can plant and harvest in each square three times a year! And no WEEDS! 

I'm planning to plant tomatoes, corn, cucumbers, potatoes, cabbage, lettuce, green and red peppers, onions, strawberries and carrots.


  1. ooooh gl with it! I'd love to do one, but out yard is too steep to find a place to put one (without digging out already established plants). so jealous!

  2. I love it! will be watching for updates on this project:)
