Square Foot Gardening Guide
If you haven’t already noticed, I am all ready for this gardening season! This year we have moved our garden location, and I have decided that I am going to attempt my first square foot garden! Last year, are garden was so massive in size that it would have been impossible to attempt it. But, I have decided to downsize a bit and I am hoping that I can still yield the same amount of crops using this method in a smaller area!
I have been doing a lot of research on what I should plant, where I should plant, and how much in each square foot I should plant. So, I have decided to share all of the great information that I have found along the way. Be sure to follow us on Pinterest as well so you can keep up to date on all of the awesome information I find!
First off, my favorite: Gardeners.com This site allows you to design your very own square foot garden! Simply put in the dimensions of your garden and drag and drop the veggies into each square! How awesome is that! I have already designed my garden and can’t wait to get planting!

I downsized my garden as well. I now have three 4×8 foot boxes. My co-worker and friend built them for me and put in markers for squarefoot gardening. They are filled with tomatoes, onions, dino kale, swiss chard, peppers, marigolds, beets, etc! I’m looking forward to installing 3 more boxes next month!
