Matt read up about square-foot gardening, so we decided to give it a try this summer. He built the box, we planted our seeds weeks ago, and I'm proud to say we already have some fresh vegetables on our hands!
One advantage to the box is the lack of weeds. We spend maybe 5 to 10 minutes a week weeding the garden. And thank goodness, because that is my least favorite part.
We are growing tomatoes, peppers, zucchini, yellow squash, pumpkin, carrots, peas, and lettuce. We don't really know what we're doing, but so far we've had success. Hopefully that continues!
