      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.
