Florida is known for its fruit trees, and I knew I wanted a lemon tree. My motto is you can never have too many lemons, but getting them at the grocery store was becoming more and more expensive. I figured if I grew them in my backyard I could save a few dollars. Which led to my thinking, “Could I make my entire backyard a little more productive, so it could give me something back instead of just taking from me?” And thus began my gardening adventure!
Square foot gardening is the practice of using a small space, and just a little bit of work, to achieve great gardening success. It is a raised-bed method and is particularly well suited to beginning gardeners and areas with poor soil. Over the years, I have played and experimented with lots of fun fruits and veggies in my yard. I now have so many varieties of fruits, vegetables, herbs, trees and beautiful plants – in the ground, in containers and in raised beds!
I am fully convinced that if I can garden, anyone can garden! It has become my mission to help others who may feel like gardening is a mystery, or is too hard, or can’t be done in a small space, or in the South West Florida heat.
Please come visit, we would love to have you over! All ages are welcome (kids benefit greatly from this gardening method, too). Come tour my garden to see what I have done.
