Sharing SFG #2 – Bonnie

Our second in a series on sharing friend’s Square Foot Garden’s is my friend Bonnie. She lives in a town house, and doesn’t have much room, but she managed to create a “stand-up” garden on her patio.

Bonnie's SFG Garden

These boxes are each 2 foot by 5 foot. I took pics of them when they were just planted, and Bonnie says the plants have taken off and the garden is much bigger. I’ll have to get follow up pics soon, so you can see how well things are growing.

This is one advantage I like about SFG, you can build any size you like and anywhere, as long as you have 6-7 hours of sunlight. Last year Bonnie was involved with a community garden and grew veggies successfully. This year she decided to try SFG because she wanted the convenience of having a garden outside her door and one that was easier to manage. (Garden tip: If your garden is close by the house, you are more likely to tend it.)

Hats off to Bonnie, and all the rest of you for trying your hand at successful gardening this year.

If you have pics of your SFG, please send them to We love to see what everyone else is doing in their gardens.

    Oh, I love your garden. I like how it’s on legs so you don’t have to bend down to do your gardening. And the storage space underneath are a plus too.
    Great idea!!
    Thanks for sharing.
