Square Foot Garden: Getting Started

at Home Depot getting supplies to build the raised beds

supplies are ready to go
easy to follow instructions
drilling the holes before building
putting the beds together (it reminded me of ikea furniture except I had to pre-drill the holes)
everything laid out and ready to go

three 3x3 beds


one 2x6 bed 

one 3x3 double bed for carrots, potatoes, onions, etc...

bottoms lined with plastic

all ready to go!

vermiculite for "mel's mix"



peat moss for "mel's mix"
5 different kinds of compost for "mel's mix"
different types of compost were very difficult to find; after only finding three kinds, I finally found some variety at Wal-Mart -- a store I hate and can count the number of times I've been to on one hand



box 1 location: full sun


box 2 location: full sun, will build a trellis for vines

box 3 location: partial shade






box 4 & 5: partial shade

waiting to be planted
