Layout for a newbie

Post  CindiLou on 3/29/2011, 1:14 am

In the magazine "Garden Gate" (based in Des Moines) there is a double page article showing a pretty good layout for SFG. She isn't doing it in sfg spacing but can be changed around. She does use grids (maybe that makes it a sfg lol). She put layouts for spring, summer, and fall in the planning. This would at least give an idea of how to do it and plant suggestions. I think the zone would pretty much be 5a and 5b.

In the article she didn't call it a square foot garden but reading online she does. And give spacings also.

That is the National Home Gardening Club magazine. Online archive doesn't go past 2008. Guess I will have to look into it.

Thanks!

Anytime we can give suggestions like these to new members, I think it's a positive thing. Great find, CindiLou!!
