Planting a garden by the numbers, with the Square Foot method


After spending Memorial Day weekend helping my in laws plant flowers and finish up a garden, I'm about gardened out. But for those of you who still want to get a garden put together now, there's a new blog that will help you put on together quickly and economically, even if you profess to having a pair of black thumbs. It's called Square Foot Gardening.

Square Foot Gardening is a method of gardening that takes place in a raised box and uses a grid pattern to map out where to grow different vegetables. This lets first time and experienced gardeners avoid many common gardening problems, and also makes it easy to plan out your crops.
