Hi guys! I'm looking for feedback on my garden plan as this is the first year that we are attempting square foot gardening.

Thanks in advance for any feedback!

hi and welcome to SFG!!

only thing that stood out to me was the mint.....mint will take over the garden and is hard to get rid of once it does....i would suggest growing mint in a pot instead.....

I agree, get rid of the mint. Move it to a pot, bucket or anything else. It is very invasive and will pop up in all the squares surrounding it next year.

I like Mel’s Plan to keep everything 4 foot x 4 foot, with a large path way between them. I know there is a lot of variations and I even use a 2 foot wide by eight foot long box. If you have the room I would go with two 4 x4 boxes.Very Happy

I would grow Borage in place of the Mint. Will bring in beneficial insects to protect all that solanaceae you are growing (peppers, tomatoes, eggplant, etc.).
