New and excited for the coming season


Hello and thanks for popping by my blog, I am new here and am enjoying browsing the blogs and loving all the photos.
Last year I started square foot gardening, I built 2 × 3ft square boxes and fed myself, daughter and various visitors on the salads and vegetables I grew.
I will be trying new things this year so to keep a record thought it may be interesting to blog about it.

Mid summer last year and the boxes were at there most productive but I hadnt finished the work around them.

Welcome to GoY. Very interested to read your blog, Carol, as I have just installed two veggie boxes in my garden. Mine are a bit smaller than yours, just 2' x 2' and I plan to divide each into four, growing mainly salad leaves for my tortoises! I also thought about spring onions, globe carrots and a few beetroot. I hadn't thought about what to grow in winter so some ideas would be appreciated :)

I missed winter planting, I only started last year Gee19 and didnt realise how much you have to plan ahead!
I joined here hoping it will encourage me and give me some ideas too..
I did all those last year, will be doing them this year too cos they really grow quickly and easily so have fun.
