Mary, Mary, Quite Contrary, How Does Your Garden Grow?

Just like this little nursery rhyme, I’d love to know: How does your garden grow?

There are so many types of gardens to plant, with so many different types of spaces to grow in, I’m interested how everyone does it.

In our last home, we built these raised beds and planted a square-foot garden pictured above. It was the best. I’m a believer! I really felt like I could maximize the space we had for the most veggies possible! Here’s an update on how it grew.
