    It is drip irrigation. I just wrote a new post all about it!

    I too am interested in the irrigation system. Is that drip tubing or soaker hose?

  3. Emily says:

    I built my system myself, with the help of the local plumbing/irrigation supply store. I’ll be doing a post on irrigation soon, so keep an eye out!

  4. Wow, looks great. I’ve started my own square foot garden for the first time this year. I hope I have your success. I love how the garlic is growing. I really need to try some of that but I’ve already used up all my squares. Guess I could try it in some pots.

    Toni-I purchased grids from They come with strips of plastic that you snap together with snaps that are provided. I also have purchased grids from They are glued together.

    Heather-Garlic doesn’t come back year after year, at least not that I know of. I planted one clove in each spot, and expect it to grow one head of garlic. Tip: plant in October or November.

    Melissa-I haven’t had huge success with carrots, but I’m determined to try again!

    I haven’t tried carrots yet in my square foot garden. Your garden looks great!

    It looks awesome! Question about your garlic. This just comes back every year right? How much fresh garlic cloves do you get? I would like to start some but I’m not sure how much to start. Any tips?

    What did you use for grids in your beds that are pictured?
