This blog is dedicated to the practice and methods of the square foot garden. After seeing the yield of my traditional single row garden compared to my neighbors square foot garden it was easy to see that I had to make a change. And that’s exactly what I did. I’m a certified SFG instructor who interned with the inventor of the SFG system many years ago in Eden, Utah. Living in northern Utah-Zone 6B-can be a challenge. I do garden through all four seasons-including our hard winters. My priorities now are to be able to feed my family at any time of the year from my garden and to teach others how to do the same thing. As you visit you’ll see the things I am doing throughout the year. I hope it gives you a desire to learn how to become more self-sufficient-producing things that taste so much better than anything you’ll buy in any supermarket. I remember a statement many years ago by an individual who said the closer we live to the earth the happier and healthier we will be. I’ve always believed that. As I have worked the soil, planted seeds, nurtured growing plants, and eventually harvested the bounty, it amazes me how much food we can get from a small and simple patch of land filled with nothing but dirt and a seeds. Along the way, maybe gardening will become a passion and hobby for you as it has for me. Wealth comes from the earth enabling us to grow delicious, tasty, and healthier food for our families .
