Gardening  Since moving to the country we've started a huge garden, an orchard of fruit trees, and citrus trees as well as a patch of this and that.  We are using the square foot gardening method for our vegetables and sharing tips and instructions on how we did it.  Everything from soil to harvest. Favorite things  about square foot gardening are: no more tilling the soil and weeds are minimized.. So much to learn, but very exciting and rewarding.
