We finally have a square foot garden and a few containers as well. Since this is our first season, it is more of an experiment. We plan on adding to it as we gain skills.
I mixed the soil according to the All New Square Foot Gardening by Mel Bartholomew.
The garden is also part of the kids' homeschool. They each helped to plant and water half of the garden and they have their own containers to take care of. I also got the Square Foot Gardening with Kids book, also by Mel Bartholomew. It has interesting things for them to learn and do.
