Empty squares...

I am just totally loving Square Foot Gardening!

Empty squares...
-Harvested a few squares of Yukon Golds and more will be coming out soon.
-Harvested a few squares of radishes.
-My lettuce bed is getting empty...

Planting more...
Today I planted more carrots & radishes.
-planted 2 squares of round carrots
-planted 2 squares of white tipped radishes (don't know how these will do with the heat)

Thinking about a fall/winter crop...
-over winter carrots???

When I had a row garden I felt totally overwhelmed with weeds and plants... and produce. But having my garden broken down into 1 foot by 1 foot squares really makes all the difference!


  1. It's so nice to hear you all on top of your garden. I'm so glad it's working for you.

  2. Hi Toni
    I love my raised beds too-I used to hate trying to decide where to start weeding, it seemed overwhelming. The only thing I don't like about them is they dry out quicker -not good when you don't get rain! These would be perfect for someone in a wet climate. As for me, mulch, mulch, mulch!

  3. I totally agree...I am loving my SFG too. Far less weeds- and my weeds are on my walkways not in my veggie beds! Its great. We also filled some of the empty squares with more lettuce. My Swiss Chard has turned in to my favorite crop- I am growing this again for sure!
