But enough about my simple annoyances. Lets talk about something important, something like gardening.
|I hope this is what my harvest will look like|
But I've been reading about this Square Foot Gardening. Where you build small raised beds (check) and don't grow in rows but in little square foot sections (check). This way you are supposed to get more plants in a much smaller space then a traditional row garden. In a way, I grew my veggies this way last year.
The Square Foot Garden uses no soil, but a combination of compost, peat moss, and vermiculite. This I have not been doing. But I'm thinking about trying it in the two unfilled beds. From what I read, this combination is easier for roots to take hold, holds moisture better, and naturally fertilizes the plants.
It makes sense and sounds like it's easy enough to do. I like the way that you divide the garden into square feet, which makes it easier to plan out the garden.
Has anyone tried this before? Does it work as wonderfully as they say it does? I would love to try it, especially if it will make my garden strong and fruitful. Let me know if you have tried it and if you have any suggestions.
