My First Real SFG

Post  gear8509 on 6/8/2010, 1:40 pm

I must have been destined to have a Square Foot Garden. I am an out of work Designer and I am using the time to learn new skills.

I made these 4x4 boxes last year before I had even heard of sfg. I built them with instructions from blogs. My garden did not do well last year because I used traditional planting. This year I read the book, used Mel's mix and made the grid. It is looking great so far!

Please take a look at my blog to see pics.

Here is a close up of the 3 sisters. The corn is in the center and squash is in the middle, pole beans are at the top. Just added irrigation today.
