Square Foot Gardening

Asked February 9, 2013, 3:42 PM EST

Has CSU done any testing on the Square Foot Gardening growing method for backyard gardeners? How does it equate to the agriculture based garden system?

El Paso County Colorado fruits and vegetables

Not per se or by that specific name.....There is a book by that name, Square Foot Gardening by Mel Bartholomew (Rodale Press) that is often used for reference. It's one method to start veg gardening and a good way to use small spaces in your backyard. The author recommends raised beds and use of compost.
