About

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 .

  1. Wow, coming out with another ebook!?! Very nice. Look forward to reading it.
    Everything you grow always looks so nice. Our weather here in Colorado has been nothing short of crazy this spring. We have gotten tons of moisture which is a good thing. But no heat! My garden looks ok, just making very slow progress.
    Hope all is well in your world.

    1. Hey Colin, how’s everything. Sounds like the weather isn’t helping you very much. Right now we’ve cooled down by 20 degrees from last week. You know what they say about the weather in the Rocky Mountain states. It’s slowed me down a little bit at this point as well, but in 2 weeks I should be really going strong. Cherry tomatoes already here along with tons of chard, carrots, and lettuce. Waiting for beans, squash, zucchini, carrots, basil, and beets. Are you growing anything new? I had a fantastic winter growing a bunch of new things that I’ve never tried before that ended up being just fantastic. Hang in there, summer will come….maybe just a little later….good to hear from you again. Are you still on the forum?…Jim
