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?
or something else? If wood, what size…2×6?
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!

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 4×4 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!
