All my previous experience with Vegetable Gardening has been with the old fashioned row planting which I found to be so labor intensive that I did not want to garden this way. I had read Square Foot gardening and read about Kitchen Gardening and combined the best of both worlds. I have the land to create it, so I decided to map it out. I started creating a map on my computer in the Winter of ‘08/’09 and decided to purchase a Mantis tiller in April 2009. When it arrived, I gave Tom the task of tilling up my spot. My son and I put up the fencing and then we made boxes. These are not raised beds just dividers. Got some free mulch from the tree trimmers and was off and running.
Not everyone understood what I was doing since it’s out of the norm for most Wisconsin gardeners but once I got it going and planted, I had so many compliments on it!
