How Many Squares 2017

Post  mschaef on 4/16/2017, 11:46 pm

I know that we had a thread going for this but I have posted in it several times and wanted to see who has the most squares going for this year. So I decided to start a new on.

I have 30 squares to play with this year unless all me start survive than hubby promised me he will make me another box. How about you?

Six 4 x 8 beds plus one 4 x 4.  But one bed is only for tomatoes so that one is split into eight 2 x 2 squares.  
Total plantable squares = 184, but I'm keeping some open to allow for impulse garden center buys, staggered plantings if I remember, and an attempt to give some things a little extra room to grow.
Plus two 2 x 10 beds, but they are only for my cutting garden flowers.

72 squares, about 60 containers (herbs, flowers, and dwarf citrus that we bring inside during the winter), 3-4 new flower beds (maybe) and soon to be about 600' of BTE.

It is looking like 258 squares for this year.  That is 9 raised beds and an area that maybe will get a frame made for it, or not.  O, and a couple planters for peppers.

WOW!  Some of you folks have a lot of squares.  My problem is too many things to grow and not enough room to grow them in.  I need to do a better job of getting my seed buying under control.

Right now I have:

  • 8 squares in a 2x4 Table Top (ANSFG)
  • 64 squares in four 4x4 beds  (ANSFG)
  • 32 squares in two 4x4 beds (close to being old style SFG)
  • About 4'x32' of regular soil veggie garden (part of this is raspberries and rhubarb; also used for squash, potatoes, tomatillos)

Hoping to add another 32 square feet, either ANSFG or BTE.
