Square Foot Bed
A Square Foot Bed at Ryton Organic Gardens

Spring has sprung and I’ve been busy in the garden – sorting out the water butts and the compost heaps, and sowing seeds. The First Lady has been busy too, starting a new vegetable patch in the White House Garden. There’s a great piece about how they could have made a more sustainable garden over at Transition Culture.

This episode is all about Square Foot Gardening – Mel Bartholomew’s technique to crop a lot of crops in a small space and minimal resources and effort. Plus we learn a bit about hugelkultur and the AKG Sprouts are planting potatoes in containers.
