Just in time for Spring, here are my square foot garden plans. I know many of you are just beginning to think about gardening, but in my neck of the woods, I’m already late! I’ve had things planted for a few weeks, but I just can’t get used to the idea of starting plants indoors in January! I’m putting a reminder on my phone so that I’ll remember for next year. (I hope!)
My smaller boxes are 4’x4′, and my large box is 8’x4′. I do not recommend the long box. It is very difficult to reach the plants in the middle. If you want to square foot garden, stick to nothing larger than 4’x4′. The squares inside the boxes are created with old blind slats that have been stapled together into a grid. Right now, the boxes are mostly empty, but here’s what they look like in early Summer (I can’t wait!):
Each of my boxes has a trellis on one side for vine plants. Want to build your own? This gorgeous picture is from my Uncle’s garden. I only wish my garden looked that good!
Be sure to check out last week’s garden post. I provided a chart showing which plants grow well together in the garden.
Thanks for stopping by, and happy gardening!
