Good looking garden! I remember when you started it. I started out that way. I am much larger now.

Thanks for the comments.
The garden soil came from Lowes. It just said garden soil on the bag. I added 6 bags of cow manure. Two of the boxes have nursery mix in them from local supplier. It was much better than what I got from Lowes. The soil from lowes would not hold much moister. The soil from my local suplier was much better . It looked about the same but he had added more top soil with sand and some clay. Where the tatters are planted along the fence thats just plane top soil with some of the local supliers soil mixed in it could use some more bark and humas...........John

Thanks for the info John. It all looks really great! Smiley
Keep us posted on how it produces. I've read about and tried square foot gardening, but I didn't have much success with it. Maybe I'll try it again with different soil next time.
