Garden Update

so to the left is a little example of how the square foot garden works...amazing...isnt it beautiful? so i only planted 14 of the squares so far and from those i will get:

64 Carrots (which is great because they can stay in the ground a while if you aren't ready to eat them right away so i basically will have my own carrot store in the backyard)

12 heads of Romaine Lettuce
8 heads of Butterhead Lettuce
9 heads of Spinach
32 Green Onions
2 Broccoli plants

the best part is that i still have 18 squares left to plant! what would have taken up my whole garden now only takes a percentage...i already love the idea! Here is a pic of the garden with the strings which help to plan out the squares. i recorded which are which on my computer...i probably need to also post it somewhere on the garden as well...maybe a fun craft idea with bryson..
