Square Foot Garden Planner (Free Download)


Making a garden plan is essential to creating a productive garden. If you are using raised beds, you should consider learning about square foot gardening.  This method, was coined by Mel Bartholomew in 1981, who has a book on the subject here. This way of gardening can help you grow more fresh produce in less space with less work. This will be my first year doing this, and I am super excited.

I created this freebie to help you plan your garden for the upcoming season with instructions on how to get started.

  • This is the flower for okra and wow it's beautiful. I often think of my ancestors learning to farm. How did they figure it out. Who said ok after that flower stay tuned for a fruit or a vegetable? 
How did figure out some plants aren't tasty after they basil or arugula. 
  • Wanted to share some photos of the plants that aren't doing so well. Mold really did a number on the squash plants. Still trying to save them. Also some bugs on these cauliflower. 
It's not always perfect. But there are organic remedies to treat. 
  • Searching...searching..searching. 
For some ripe bell peppers. 
Getting there.
