I am starting my first garden and I want it to be semi easy. I read "Square Foot Gardening" and it looks very interesting. Does anyone else do this?

Hi
Did you get the book on square foot gardening, its a handy book to have..i personally don't have the room for square ft beds but I work in them at a public demo garden where I volunteer at..Its amazing the amount of veggies we get from ours..we have char, radishes , carrotts, lettuces , tomato , cabbage and even some herbs planted in them...Its definitely a neat way to go in a small space and the volume that is harvested from our 6 beds is good too..
Try them I think you''ll be pleased.

We have a good size garden, but because we live in a short growing climate, we decided to try to maximize our yields. We do square foot gardening on a larger scale and it's incredible the amount of produce we get. We aren't using raised beds as instructed in the book. We have just mounded up the beds. Make sure that you add compost to your beds every year.
It's very easy and you will also have to weed less often. A real bonus.
