If your garden space has bad soil this is a great way to have a garden.I have used this method to garden for four years. It is easy to reach all the spaces and no weeds to hoe or pull.

This book offers great information for growing plants in small spaces (and large areas, too.) There are also great charts for planting seasons and how to extend them. The pictures are also really helpful and show some great ideas for your square foot garden. I was surprised by how much great information the book contained.
