Square foot vegetable garden, my first attempt!


I just decided since I retired this year I would try my 3 years of horticulture from college on a square foot garden plot! I started with 5 beds built out of left over lumber from our 20yr.old deck (gotta recycle) I started with non GMO heirloom seeds started indoors.
Two days old! everything was transplanted from inside.
7 differant varieties of potaoes in the first bed.broccoli, cauliflower and kale in the second bed
my heirloom beands from the indians 1840's
