    Thanks for the comment and the vote! If you haven't found it already, you should check out smartgardener.com. I would've been lost trying to plan my garden last year and this upcoming year if I hadn't found that site.

    Hey there, thanks for commenting on my garden. Raised beds are simple and square foot gardening is great for small spaces. I can plant so much in a little yard (though I do wish I had way more land for more fruit trees). By the way, I echo your sentiment about why we get dirty ??
