This weekend we decided to plant our garden. I know it's not much, but we're working with what we've got! If anyone has an excuse not to have a garden, it me. Ok, so maybe if you live in a large city with a high-rise apartment and no balcony, then you have a better excuse than me. But still, we live in a townhouse with no more than a few feet of patio and a few square feet between shrubs in our flower beds.
The last few years we've done pots with tomatoes, herbs, green beans and some zucchini. This year however, we've added the square foot boxes. This will be my first attempt at square foot gardening. Luckily I have my amazing neighbors and friends, Emily and Iliana, to walk me through it. They've had great success with theirs the last couple of years.
