I actually use less time than this with my method. I use the “Square
Foot Gardening” method. This method uses essentially raised flower
beds which eliminates tilling and makes weeding a snap. It also uses a
more efficient method of planting in square sections as opposed to in
rows. It shows how a 4′ square plot will grow enough vegetables for
one person for a season. I picked it up from the library and loved it
so much that I bought it for the tips. I loan it out to friends too.
I just love it, and I’ve been using it for about 3 years now. I end up
with LOTS of vegetables stored in my frezer by summer’s end.
