My name is Katie. I live in Boston (zone 6a) and am doing a Square Foot Garden this year for the first time. I’m really excited for it.
Here’s my plan! What do you guys think? I’m already thinking that those tomatoes are probably too close together and I’ll have to move one to a container.
Due to some scheduling conflicts beyond my control, I won’t actually have the garden constructed until mid-May. I’m thinking that I will start some crops in containers and move them into the garden once it’s constructed (as gently as possible). Probably I’ll do that with the beans, broccoli, lettuce, and peas. I know transplanting can be risky, but I’m afraid if I wait until mid-May, I won’t be able to capitalize on the garden!
