square foot garden method. I have a large garden area but the soil is very heavy clay so last year I built a couple of boxes and added some purchased soil. It seemed to work pretty well although shortly after planting the cows got out and had to investigate it. They caused quite a bit of damage. Hopefully that doesn't happen this year. In this box I planted 8 squares of peas, 8 squares of carrots, 4 squares of beets, 2 squares of spinach, 2 squares of lettuce, 2 squares of beans, 2 squares of radishes, and 4 squares of onions. So that is a lot of garden in a little space. We will see how it grows this year. I have a lot more I want to plant but it is supposed to rain most of this weekend. So when the weather gets nice again I will be busy.
