Sq. Ft. Gardening Sustainability

We're doing a square foot garden as I've said before. I was concerned about the sustainability of the method and while listening to the Survival Podcast, was pleased to run across one that covers this very topic. A very informative post that also covers HR875.

Growing your own food is indeed bloodless revolution. Check it out: Cuba Got Those Greens. Even a small window box . . . survival mindedness so that we can thrive.

I so wish I could see the garden and have a good organic veggie meal in your kitchen. I absolutely LOVE this blog!

I enjoy ready your blog. I came across this blog while trying to find a pattern for a simple crochet bag. Hope this is helpful.

Chi-Chi, planting your own garden is sooo important, especially this season. I have gotten my dirt to help build my soil even stronger.

Looks like my town is starting up a community garden so despite not having enough land to garden, I will be able to plant this year.

Good luck with your garden!

Hey Smokie! I'd love you to come by! ((smiles))

Anonymous, thanks for stopping by! I'll check out the link.

Ensayn, so glad to hear you're getting ready to grow! Blessed Love!

BGIM, that is soooo exciting. I would really like to get involved in a community garden. There's an empty lot on the town's main road that would be a great location for a community garden but I just don't think the folks in my town would be interested.

Wow! Thanks so much for posting about this! I am planning on sustaining a small garden as well. This will prove useful.

That's awesome! I have the book about square foot gardening and can't wait to dive into it :)

Thanks for posting the link to the square foot garden info. I'm very intrigued. I'd love to do a garden with the kids. We already belong to a co-op and plan to can some items this spring.

Miriam, you're very welcome. I don't mind you linking to this post at all.

Kristen, it's a really good and accessible book . . . it's given this squirmish city girl (i.e. I *don't do* worms and dirt) confidence.

Sabrina, I used to belong to a coop and *loved* it. I wish I had thought about canning back then . . .gardening is a great project for children. We plan on building them their own 2x2 box. :) I'd love to see what you can btw . . . I'm a total novice. I just bought my supplies and I can't wait.
