Square Foot Gardening

Well we spent the weekend planting out first ever Square Foot garden. We use the All New Square Foot Gardening Book for our inspiration:

We have two 4' x 15' square foot gardens.

Where we planted: Spinach,Sweet Corn, Red Cored Carrots, Green Onions, Red Onions, Romaine Lettuce, Black Seeded Lettuce, Mixture of Gourmet Lettuce, Squash, two different types of Cucumbers, two different types of Tomatoes, yellow peppers, JalapeƱo peppers, Green Bell peppers and Red Bell Peppers and Cilantro.

We have a small area just outside out back door where I have made an Herb Garden. Here we planted: Sage, Thyme, Chives, Dill, two kinds of Mint and Basil.


Tom is now building an 8' x 8' square foot garden so we can grow: watermelon, cantaloupe and honey dew melons. The girls also would like to plant sunflowers in there as well.

I would love to have our own compost pile this season . . so that next year we can use it in our garden.

Do you have a garden? How big is it and what do you grow? I would love to here your gardening wisdom.

I plan on up dating this monthly so you can see our progress. Thanks so much for visiting!!!


All your children shall be taught by the Lord, And great shall be the peace of your children. Isaiah 54:13
