Welcome to Square Foot Growing. Hopefully a fun place to check out different aspects of Mel Bartholomew’s popular Square Foot Gardening method. Along with Mel’s ideas, I will be covering many different aspects of growing and preserving your harvest, with many “How to” videos and articles from various sources, all stressing the importance of becoming more self sufficient during these uncertain times. I am not a horticulturist, have no degrees, but do have hands on gardening experience I would like to share with you. While FOOD will be the main topic here, we are going to throw in a few flowers for beauty and pest control. Hope you enjoy. Fred
