In May 2012, I decided to start a vegetable garden for the first time in my life. Like many of you, I am parent with a full-time out of the house job. I am not a homesteader or garden hobbiest. I simply want fresh vegetables for my family but since that I am prone to killing plants growing my own garden seemed impossible. But that was before I read and become so inspired by Mel Bartholomew’s easy-to-understand gardening book ‘The All New Square Foot Gardening Method’ that I started a garden over the Memorial Day Weekend and wanted to document my efforts for others to learn from. In part one, I cover the basics of my experience one week after the garden was built. I have questions and concerns but overall the garden seems to be off to a good start. I am reporting from the Southern California area where temperatures are over 85 degrees in late May. I’m concerned about insufficient water and too much heat. I hope to learn alot…We’ll see how this goes!
