Video: How We Use Square Foot Gardening to Maximize Planting Space in our Backyard Urban Vegetable Garden!

We are big fans of the Seeding Square for Square Foot Gardening! This device makes it really easy to have consistent plant spacings and to keep everything organized.
Square foot gardening is a gardening method where you divide your gardening space out into square foot (12″) areas. Mel Bartholomew’s book Square Foot Gardening, introduced the idea of planting densely within 4’x4′ raised beds in this square foot method. This method helps to promote growing space when you have limited growing space within your garden. Each square can be planted with different crops depending on what crops are considered good companions.

A great way to maximize your growing space is to grow vertically! Check out this video to see how we make our trellises using commonly found supplies from the hardware store!
A lot of people ask us about From Seed to Spoon and how we make money off of all the work that we do. Up until now, we haven’t! We’ve used the income from our full time jobs to pay for costs and we’ve built this from our own bank accounts. We’ve done all the work on the app ourselves and we’ve kept our server costs to a minimum.
