I met the man briefly in Utah, and its a great system to get started. Grow small, manageable amounts of things you like. But it doesn't have to be a square, and it doesn't have to be a grid. Square foot gardening is a stepping stone to ANY gardening. Grow what you like to eat.

That's cool that you met him. I think it's a great beginner system too. Zucchinis don't seem to care which square I tell them to be in.

Perhaps "Cubic Foot Gardening" might have been more appropriate?

They don't have to be all food, and these creative gardens don't have to be for flowers.

Don't forget to grow a variety of mint plants for your cocktails!
