Preparation

a Whether you garden organically or non-organically, you must have the best possible soil, soil that will produce bumper crops.

Since most soil is far from good, you must build up a rich, humusy, well-drained soil. In conventional gardens, this might be prohibitively expensive. But that's not true in square foot gardening, since it requires only 20 percent of the space of a conventional garden for an equal amount of produce.

First step in preparing a bed is to strip off the grass, then loosen the subsoil, removing rocks and roots.

I have two recommendations.

  1. Right at the beginning, build perfect soil.
  2. Start small and prepare the perfect soil for the size garden that you can afford.

Don't start out by planting a large garden in poor soil. You'll only be wasting your time and producing a poor harvest.
