This is my largest vegetable garden. I built it last year in sections. This year I plan on painting it with all the time I will save with a square foot garden.
This year I will grow asparagus, tomatoes, squash, peas, beans, cucumbers, cauliflower, broccoli, spices, flowers to keep some bugs away and to bring in some others. Lots of greens are planted here: spinach, lettuce, collard greens, Swiss chard, turnip and mescalin.
I will try my hand again with watermelon (not much luck last year, late start) all tho we don’t really have the extended weather for watermelon or cantaloupe, this year I feel good about it producing fruit and will plant both again.
I use organic soil for filling the containers. The soil is a mixture of organic mushroom compost, worm casting, organic compost, peat moss, vermiculite (or perlite) and rock dust. I buy different brands of each, then mix all items together and add it to the containers. Now I don’t have to do anything else to it except add plants, water it and add more compost to it each year. No more tilting or walking on the beds.
