    Hi All,

    Well I am finally going to do it. I am going to garden this year.

    Does anyone have any books or websites I should check out in regards

    to gardening for family use? I am hoping that this will help further

    cut our food bill. Any help would be great. Jane

    I started square-foot gardening last year and have been amazed at how

    easy and fun it has been. I grew different types of lettuce and would

    clip leaves each day for a mixed green salad, added cherry tomatoes

    also from the 4x4 area and had tons of other vegies like carrots,

    chard, beets, big tomatoes and other stuff. Plus I grew cilantro(love

    it!!), parsley and basil(for pesto. I have NEVER gardened before and

    was surprised at how much fun it is!Plus I did not even dig up the

    grass first. I just laid down newspaper and it works as a natural

    blocker! This year I plan to build a second frame for flowers! Frugal

    and fun! Plus its great for my diet!

    We are gardeners from way back--4 kids and very little money--heres a few tips we use---seeds--pinti beans--the kind you cook make great green beans -pole beans--use them right from the bag--very heavy produceing--what you dont use green can dry on the pole and use that way---red beans from your bag make great bush beans very heavy also--eat green dry on vine---our bell peppers come from what we buy in the winter at the store we dry seed and plant--tomatoes we take the first tomatoes and dry seed for next year--same with all the others--kale and collards will go to seed also just dry----no need to buy seed ever--use what grows best in your garden year after year-----We are in south central Texas and because of good old plastic bags from the store we are eating our first green beans and collards tonight---

    Hi Lynne!

    I just discovered square-foot gardening
    and am really anxious to try it. Glad to hear it’s as easy as it looks
    cause I’m a newbie to gardening. What did you use to make the box? Wood
    or something else? If wood, what size…2x6?

    Next question…did you get plants and
    start them inside, or seeds, and how early in the season did you start them?

    Sorry, have lotsa questions. Any help
    would really be appreciated!

    Bonnie

    Lynne can you describe the soil you used and where you live? I am wondering how far apart were these plants and what order are they planted in. Sounds like you are successful. Dianna
