Square Foot Gardening: Get Started for $50

Fancy blogging means I get emails from people asking me to try such and such a product and then blog about it. The first time I received such an email I was SO excited. I’m legit! None of the product offers have been a good match for me or things I think you all would care to read about, so I haven’t taken anyone up on the deal. Now, if I get an offer from Nikon to try out a new camera, Dell to try their newest computer, Home Depot because they want to finish remodeling our house for us, or Pioneer Woman to be her best friend, you better believe you’ll be hearing about it. 🙂

I received an email this week with a link to an info graphic that someone thought I might like to use. They were right! It’s such a great image. This isn’t a sponsored post. I don’t get anything for sharing the image. I just thought it was something that you might like.

You all know that I love to garden but I also want you to love to garden! It’s such a fun, practical, and tasty skill. I discussed the reasons why I garden and how to start a cold loving garden in this post.

And in case you need a little more help getting started:

Isn’t that a great info graphic?

Go grab your gloves and the hose, you have no reason to delay gardening any longer. Are you convinced yet?

And if you need a little more inspiration, Rachel at Thrifty Inspirations made two boxes and filled them for $50 too! Her DYI instructions/post can be found here!

I’m baffled as to how a blueberry plant is considered small. I guess make sure you get a low bush variety and plant it towards the middle and be prepared for it to get bigger (at least one square). Personally high bush varieties are better and you get more off of them. Good luck!

I was looking for a recommendation on the “really small plants”

What would be considered a “Really Small” plant?

Wow this is crazy! I have a 6 x 6 garden and was fretting that I wouldn’t be able to fit enough in! This shows me I totally can! Thanks!!

My boxes are 4 by 8 and I have one filled with 25 strawberry plants. I picked 5 quarts and made freezer jam yeasterday. It is a great way to eat healthy that requires only a small space.
