Square Foot Gardening

It seems like just yesterday I was watching the snow fall and now I am knocking the dirt off my khakis looking over the spring vegetables we just planted in the One Acre Vegetable Garden.

Because not everyone has an acre to plant, we've set up an 8' x 8' framed bed to demonstrate to visitors how they can plant the same crops on a smaller scale. This year we're trying out Mel Bartholomew's Square Foot Gardening technique, which divides a framed bed into 1-foot x 1-foot squares.
