A few years ago, I bought my first square foot garden, it came with 8 bags of soil and a roadmap for success. I planted the garden as called for with these items in those squares, and these seeds in these squares, only to have some animals swoop in and eat my plants. I tried it ago only to have my gardening pulverized by heavy rains, and then birds. I tried one last time and harvested a few tomatoes and a couple of green peppers that the first year. I was hooked. The next couple of years I made my garden bigger and bigger getting fruit and vegetables. Last year my haul was fantastic. This year I got my garden started with 3 different tomatoes, some jalapenos, sugar peas, cucumbers, zucchini, green peppers and this year trying watermelon. I also have a grapevine, some strawberries, raspberries and blueberries. Not bad for a city kid that only started a few years ago. I find peace and serenity when I am working on my garden. What brings you to that point?
