Square foot gardening

Today Thomas and I created a veggie garden using the square foot gardening method. When I say we I actually mean Thomas as I broke my arm a couple of weeks ago and am still pretty useless with it. I did however take some photos.

With square foot gardening you plant a different type of plant in every square foot of your garden.

We planted from seed the following:

– 2 squares of cherry tomatoes
– 2 squares of spinach
– 1 square of cucumber
– 1 square of chives
– 2 squares of zucchini
– 2 squares of basil
– 2 squares of capsicum
– 2 squares of spring onion
– 2 squares of lettuce

So far today I’ve had:

– salad sandwiches with Lisa’s feta dressing, cucumber, cheese, lettuce, tomato
– apple and cheese and fat juicy date snack
– fresh strawberries in yogurt
– celery with cream cheese

For dinner I’m having a greek salad with a potato, kidney beans, carrot and leek veggies burger.

I’m in love with veggies. We need to eat this lot before our weekly box from commonsense organics arrives on Wednesday. Yuuummm!
