Spring Salad Garden Plan ~ Square Foot Garden #1

Here is the plan for my first Square Foot Garden for spring.  It is basically a salad garden.  I will replant the lettuce, radishes, spinach and carrots in the fall.  Those squares will be empty during the summer heat.

As we only have one radish eater in the family I will plant eight seeds each week.  I will be planting short varieties of carrots and probably two or three different lettuces.  As with the radishes, I will plant eight carrots each week and replant as we harvest.   I will harvest some onions for salads and cooking throughout the growing season leaving every other one to grow large for a fall harvest.

At least this my plan....we will see how it all goes.
