Every year I try gardening, and every year I fail miserably. Sure I’ve had some nice cherry tomato plants now and then, usually in containers on the patio, but I have never had much luck with the big tomatoes, or any other plants. So I read a book called ‘square foot gardening’, and felt inspired to try again, this time with a raised bed, hand mixed soil, and a square foot grid (the bottom squares are only half foot, but they had to fit in my flowerbed area. I just finished it today and I’m ready to plant peas. We’ll see how it goes!
