I have always liked the raised bed method of gardening. It makes it easier to keep everything contained and avoids having to walk on the soil between the rows of plants. I came across the square foot garden concept in my research and thought it suited my situation. Last year I built a 4’ by 8’ garden and planted tomatoes, basil, peppers, beans and rosemary. I got many tomatoes and all the basil we could use. I want to do better this year.
