Square Foot Garden Templates

After the soil was placed into the raised bed boxes I, with Deb’s assistance, measured the interior width and length of the boxes so as to create a template of equal squares. (Square foot gardening.) This way, planting within the squares would have clearly delineated spaces for respective seeds and plants.

I planted 4 tomato plants in 20 inch diameter half barrels. Soil from Bachman’s was used to fill 3 of these.   We ran out of the compost so the forth 20 inch and two 18 inch half barrels were filled with an organic compost and peat moss mulch mixture. The 18 inch barrels will be used for melons.
