Square Foot Gardening

For a few years I've been doing a garden each spring, but this time I decided to try square foot gardening. Square foot gardening basically breaks up your garden into 1 foot squares. This concept is great if you don't have a whole lot of space to work with. While space isn't really an issue with my garden, square foot gardening can help you maximize the space you have.

Thanks to my husband he got the planters ready this weekend for planting.

Next I measured out each foot along the boards and hammered in a small nail. Wrapping a line of string around each nail I slowly lined out 1 foot by 1 foot squares. 

I only have some of the plants planted so far (what you see in the front is tomatoes) and I ran out of sting halfway through my third box.

More to come as I go along!
