Square Foot Gardening promotes a method of intensive gardening that conserves time, energy and land.  It is a simple, versatile method based on planting what you need in the space it needs to grow.  Square food gardening reduces time needed to prepare soil, thin, weed, control pests and water.  This book covers many basic
questions a beginning gardener may have, and provides tips for both novices and pros on succession planting (planting more than one crop in the same space) and extending your gardening season.
