Square Foot Gardening

This has by far been the easiest and best way I found for doing gardening. I used cinder blocks instead of wood and planted marigolds in the little holes all around the border. Here I have 6 square gardens. I had to weed once and not really since them. I also use the grass clippings from my mowing as a mulch on top. In the middle two are peach trees. Eventually they will take over the whole square but for now I have peppers all around them. I have the heirloom tomatoes in the back and the cucumbers in the front. I used something called the Florida weave to stake up the tomatoes in the back. It has more space saving properties than the cages. So far everything is doing well and tasting really good!
