I got the garden all in only to read freezing temperatures are expected next week. No matter, they are most likely wrong, right?
As you can see from the photo, I did my rendition of a square foot garden just like I said. I didn't follow anything that the originator of that method says to do so time will tell if I get a decent amount of produce. The nice thing is I mulched little paths between each block of plants so that my feet won't get muddy.
I will continue to post pictures as the garden grows, if for no other reason I will have a record of my method, just in case no one but me ever sees the posts.
As a side note I have about 24 peach blossoms on one tree and one on another! Didn't think I would see that happen till next summer. Now if they only produce fruit I will be thrilled!
