For our backyard garden, we decided that square foot gardening was the best use of our space. It's basically a method of organic gardening that utilizes densely planted beds to grow a large variety of produce without the wasted space of rows. It's a very interesting method, and I think it will suit us well without sacrificing too much of our yard. Here's our current setup:
Ours looks a little sparse since the plants are still very young. To see what these gardens look like when they are packed full of large, thriving plants, click here and here for a lovely selection of square foot garden photos.
I'm the type of person who thinks all babies are adorable- baby people, baby animals, and even baby plants. So when I saw that our seeds had sprouted, I went a little crazy taking photos of those sweet plant babies.
And if you're wondering where I found a set of colorful, custom garden stakes to mark my plants with, let me just show you.

I made them myself! I figured I'm probably not the only one who enjoys things that are both functional and decorative, so I decided to offer these garden stakes for sale in my shop.
I am so very excited about this new gardening venture. I will keep you updated on the progress of our garden and let you know how this technique works out for us. I think the kind of plants people grow says a lot about them. So tell me, what does YOUR garden grow?
