My Square Foot Garden....

A week or so ago, I was in a class where I learned about Square Foot Gardening.  It's quite an amazing approach to gardening.  As soon as our teacher said there was no weeding involved... EVER... I was sold.  After the class, my mother-in-law and I decided to start our own square foot garden together.  She's a lot more experienced than I am when it comes to gardening.  She also reads the directions, which I am notoriously bad at.  Anyway, this is our progress so far.  We got the building and set up out of the way, so now we just need to plant and let things grow!  I will keep you posted on our garden's progress.  Square foot gardens definitely have the potential to make it as one of my favorite things...especially when it comes time to harvest!  I can't wait to come up with, and share some new recipes inspired by our garden...

How fun! I want to do a square garden next year. I wanted to tell you that I made your fry sauce last night, and it was awesome!

I read the book last year on square gardening and had my hubby make me a box. It was very successful. I also had him build a cage that lifts up and down to keep the animals out since I live on a mountain. It has been weed free both years. The strawberries are taking over the whole box, so now I need another box. Good luck with yours!
