My very own square foot garden

We did it! We got tons of compost, peat moss, and pearlite. We mixed it all together and filled two large raised beds and a 2nd bed (not raised). I marked off my squares with string and planted presoaked seeds just as the chart said to. It took me two mornings. In years past I've only planted tomatoes, peppers (that didn't grow), cilantro, and strawberries. But this year (hopefully) we will have green & yellow beans, pea pods, spinach, lettuce, cucumber, carrots, radishes, tomatoes, onions, watermelon, zuchinni, yellow squash, acorn squash, beets, banana peppers & green peppers. I'm going to keep it watered & hope/pray that the seeds sprout and my garden grows! This is my first time trying to grow from seed so I hope it works!!
