- Gardening year: 2012
- Location: Georgia
- Planting By Color: Red
Hi! My name is Julia and I live in Atlanta, Georgia which is considered to be part of the “red group” for this site. I’m in a graduate studies program learning about Science Education, and I enjoy spending a lot of time outside when I have free time, so I picked up square foot gardening (SFG) last year.
I had success with lettuce, tomatoes, herbs, dahlias, and marigolds, and I had a small yield from my sugar snap pea plants, peppers, and cucumbers, but they seemed to die off pretty quickly. I didn’t have any success with swiss chard, radishes (they never grew the vegetable, just the greens) and cilantro. I tried to grow all of these things from seed.
My first SFG is filled with Mel’s Mix and I plan on adding a second SFG this year. I made my plan based on some of the other plans I saw on this website, but I am still having trouble deciding when to start planting the seeds inside/outside and knowing when to harvest and replace.
Any advice about my garden plan is welcomed! I hope I did a good job of deciding when to plant and with the companion planning I am trying this year. The three squares you see on the east side of my garden are planters that I am going to try this year as well.
