A lot of people have been talking about square foot gardening and wondered if I was missing something that might allow me more plants in my limited space. I have spent a few days looking at pictures of these gardens and reading about them.
I have come to the conclusion that my Daddy and Grandfather taught me square foot gardening almost 60 years ago but it was just called gardening. Granted I plant a lot of my fine seed in rows and thin to recommended space between each plant however as far as large seed such as corn, beans etc. I plant in hills of 5 seed per hill. It is recommended I think 4 seed per square foot so I have one seed for good measure. When I look at the spacing on my hills I would be about 1' on center for each hill. Guess my grandfather knew what he was doing but it just didn't have a fancy name.
