If you follow me on Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, or like my Facebook page, you’ve probably noticed that I’ve got gardening on the brain! We started our 4×8 square foot garden last year and I’m super excited to get going on it again. We’ve still got a good 4-6″ of snow on the ground, but it’ll be gone soon and it’ll be time to get our hands in the dirt.
Here’s a simple square foot garden planner to help you decide what to plant where. I like to start by noting which direction is north, just to get my bearings. Then I just write down all the veggies we like and have talked about planting one day without the intent to plant all of them (we only have 1 4×8 bed). I also write in if they need to be started indoors (and when), when they get planted outside, and when they’ll be ready to harvest. Then I just use a pencil and play around with placing plants in my 1’x1′ squares. Makes it pretty easy! I made the middle line bold just to stand out a bit more in case you have a 4×4 bed. Enjoy!
