Hi Joanna,
Square foot gardening is where you divide your garden into 1 foot squares. Then you plant 1,2,4,9 or 16 things in the square. For example,in one square you could plant 1 squash, or 16 carrots, or 4 strawberry plants. There's alot of information at www.squarefootgardening.com I find it very interesting.

Welcome, Michelle.

What's a square foot garden? Something special or just a garden that's a square foot?

Looking forward to hearing more about your gardening.

Hi everyone,
Thanks for the warm welcome. Momingarden,I don't know about the flowers along the freeway in Northern Ca as I am in Southern Ca and we don't have flowers along our freeways. Too much smog! I'm not really into flowers as much as veggies, however, I did plant sunflowers and one is starting to bloom. So I'm excited about that. My veggies are off to a slow start, the weather here has been dreary and overcast as I'm on the coast.
I'm looking forward to getting to know everyone
Michelle

Welcome to the team from the Midwest! I look forward to hearing about your garden taking notes because I would like to try this style next year around our greenhouse.

What is your favorite flower? I love the orange flowers that grow along the edge of the freeways in the Bay Area of California. DO you know what those are?

IT all begins with YOU..... Plant the seeds and get growing healthy!

Can't find me - I am always in the garden:

Welcome to a great Spark Team Michelle!

You're going to find gardening a lot more exciting with the backing of your Spark Friends . . . and as a bonus, you'll loose weight doing it.

It's nice to meet you.

Welcome Michelle! Gardening is good exercise and the results can be good healthy things to eat. Or beautiful flowers to feed your soul! No downside. I look forward to getting to know you.

Hi everyone. I'm so glad to have found this group. This is only my second year with a vegetable garden, but I love it. I am using the square foot gardening method and keeping my fingers crossed for a good harvest. I'm looking forward to meeting everyone
