Following is a photo essay demonstrating how Jean and I built our 4 foot by 4 foot plot.
First you dig out your old soil, making a space 4'x4', 6" deep
Then you make "Mel's Mix" (compost, vermiculite and peat moss)
Always take time to greet and honor your wormie friends
Line the bottom of your 4'x4' by 6"deep bed with weed guard fabric
Mix together 8 cu. feet of Mel's mix
Moisten the mix as you fill your box
Jean is very artistic
Lay out your grid on top of the box and you are ready to plant.
More on Square Foot Gardening as the summer progresses. Please join me up at the park any Wednesday morning around 10. Lots to be done, lots to learn and enjoy. Happy Father's Day to you all. With love, Garden Girl Lives Here.
