RAISED GARDEN BOXES ~ PART 3 ~ SQUARE FOOTIN'

Now it's time to divide each box into "Square Foot boxes".  You plant more in each box this way.  I'm reading Mel Bartholomew's Square Foot Gardening Book, it has everything there is to know about Squarefoot Gardening!!  I hope my garden looks something like his!  This is what's happening....
Recipe:
Bamboo sticks (last longer than using lattice and won't rot as fast)
Galvanized poultry net staples
Ruler
Hammer
Cable Plastic Ties
 I measured each to 12 inches 
and hammered them in.
 Then, I used the cable plastic ties to tie them together.
 For the longer beds, I used the Cable ties to put two pieces together to extend them.
 And, there you have it!....
