Lindy's Square Foot Gardening


This is based on the book Square Foot Gardening my Mel Bartholomew





    The squares are 4 foot square. The smaller squares are one foot square. The mixture is weed block on the bottom, Peat Moss, Vermiculite and Compost. One 4 x 4 block produces salad for one person for everyday of the growing season. One more 4 x 4 will supply daily supper vegetables for that person through the growing season. The third 4 x 4 will provide extra for preserving, etc.
