I’m an amateur gardener. I need it to be easy. Our family benefits when I feed them fresh nutritious food, free of pesticides, additives and preservatives and one of my greatest pleasures is sharing our “harvest” with friends and neighbors.
Square foot gardening was the answer for me. I don’t have a lot of time to spend on maintenance, I don’t want to waste water and I want to have something to eat or cook with all year.
Square foot gardening allows you to grow in less space because no thinning is needed. This sounds dumb, but it pains me to thin my vegetables when they have started to grow.
You only plant what you want to use thereby using less water. Each square contains a different vegetable or herb or fruit. You replant the squares as soon as they are harvested so you will always have something to eat or cook with.
I also wrote about the easiest plants to grow and the faster plants from seed, you can read that article HERE.
