I should have clairified that you do one 4X4 box for each adult you
are feeding. Even with 4-6 boxes it is still less space than
a “normal” garden, and so much easier once you get the hang of it. I
actually have several of them scattered through my yard. I only have
to spend maybe 10 minutes once a week weeding, and it’s so easy
because the soil is soft and isn’t packed down.
