Grow A Square-Foot Vegetable Garden With This Year-Long Planting Plan

If you have a little growing space or enjoy order, try square-foot gardening. Small squares are used to divide the growing area.          

The soil is amended and divided into 1ft (30cm) squares. Seedlings or seeds are planted in each square at the space's capacity.

Plant kind determines depth. For instance, a salad garden with different greens only has to be 6 inches (15cm) deep.

Place the garden grid where it gets eight hours of sun. The soil must drain effectively and have a pH of 6.0–7.0. For most vegetables, this is average.

After building the site, prioritize which and how many foods to plant. Each square will include 1, 4, 9, or 16 plants.

Remember that squash and melon need two squares per plant. Planting cool-season and early-maturing crops successively will extend the garden into the chilly season in most zones.
