OK - Contrajor isn't really a word, but it rhymes with major... and contrary doesn't.
But this is the story of two great Scouts and a Dad who brought my Square Foot Garden and assembled it.
The boys pulled things out of the truck - and helped Dad assemble the raised bed and fill it with four bags of the official Square Foot Garden soil.
Seriously, these Scouts were amazing. They were here for less than 30 minutes and I had my Square Foot Garden bed ready to go.
I did some online research and decided to plan out my SFG before heading to our local nursery. I used this site to help me figure out how many plants to purchase.
BF and I went to Gilbertie's Nursery in Westport and purchased cherry tomatoes, garlic, onions, kohlrabi, collard greens, carrots, sweet potatoes, and arugula. Some of our other choices weren't available. We didn't purchase others because we belong to the local CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) and have been members of the Stone Gardens Farm share for about 6-8 years. We get a lot of vegetables each week - and may not need to much. I hope to start doing more canning and dehydrating in the years to come.
Oops - I had planned to add marigolds to my SFG, but I ran out of room. I'm pretty certain I can find a spot for these in the yard somewhere else. Now I just hope the critters don't eat my new garden. Please keep your fingers crossed. I may be from Iowa, but this is my first attempt at growing my own food.
