Got my boxes built! (pic)

Post  PeonyLover on 2/17/2012, 9:14 pm

Finally... after a few interruptions (sick kids, Statistics test, Sick husband, and rain) I built my boxes today! The rest of the weekend will be spent mixing my Mel's mix and filling them up. Then grids & trellises.

Built five 4 X 4's and two (of 12) 1 X 1's (high hats?) for the carrots.

Thanks! I'm really excited about the conversion to SFGing. So far, so good!
carrot week.[/quote]
I may have to go get some seeds. I have Little Fingers & Kaleidoscopic, but they aren't the right kind for the contest.

Nice Job!

Your square foot gardens look great! You will potentially have tremendous yields with that many boxes. Enjoy the process and rewards to come.

I am starting seeds for my 3rd year SFGardens. I am up to 3 4X4 boxes now. I am so very excited for another season gardening. This method which I learned from THE book, has been really fun and opened the doors to gardening which my father and mother always did when I was younger.




My 7 month old son has been eating squash that I grew last season.
There isn't a more rewarding feeling than nourishing my son with food
that I grew. cheers
