I am a budding gardener. I planted my first garden the year we moved out to the country, in 2010. I simply added compost to our rich, fertile soil into four raised rows, 36 inches across with 18-inch walkways. What I planted nearly all flourished, and along with my plants my admiration for gardening grew. The next year, emboldened by my success, I tripled the size of my garden. The summer of 2011 was laced with heat waves, and the only thing that grew in my garden that year was weeds. I was discouraged, but distracted with my pregnancy of my second daughter anyway. I knew I couldn’t handle that 16 x 30-foot plot in 2012, so I took the advice of a few friends and decided to try Square Foot Gardening instead. I’ll never look back! 2012 was my most successful year yet of gardening and now I am officially hooked!
