"When asked why they grow vegetables, gardeners often answer the question by saying they want that special homegrown flavor without preservatives, to save money by growing one’s own food and also the pleasure and satisfaction of a great hobby."

"Square foot gardening is the practice of planning small but intensively planted gardens. The garden is divided into a size and shape that gardeners of all ages, sizes and levels of experience can understand and cope with easily. It can be large enough to grow food for an entire family or just enough for a few salads each week."

"Benefits of this method of gardening are many.
