If you sign up for my gardening newsletter and select a fall color you will get reminders for a fall garden. Jennifer, according to my planting calendar you might be able to still plant melons and summer squash, but I wouldn’t expect much.
While it’s too early to know for sure, the early signs are that we are going to have a VERY successful first attempt at our square foot gardening. The boxes we used were based on the plans of a self-watering garden box in the April issue of The Family Handyman. My wife and I live in Flower Mound and are trying the square-foot method in raised beds this year as we did not have much success with our first garden last year. It’s from the Coppell Community garden, they have a lot of useful info on their site.


Any trees or bushes that you put in can be edible, expanding the use of your garden (not just in your raised beds). Companion planting improves the use of space, reduces the amount of weeds and garden pests, and provides protection from heat, wind, and in some cases snow. I just finished building a couple self-watering garden boxes based on plans in The Family Handyman magazine from this month’s issues.
Planting plants in your garden to attract butterflies and bees will be most beneficial, so it’s important to know which plants are self-pollenating and which are not. I’m no gardening expert, but I think it took a few years for the soil composition to work itself into something the plants like.
It was a fun project and I’m pretty confident they will do much better than the ground based garden we did last year.


That way you can use all of your available space and produce a very good yield by planting things that work well together, and you won’t end up planting something that will negatively impact any of your food. We add some compost each year before we plant, along with a bag of some miracle grow soil mixture, and each year our garden has gotten a little better and better. I didn’t realize how important companion planting was until I started actually trying to produce my own food.
So just realize that the first few years will have issues, you’ll be able to learn from them, and your garden will just get that much better each year.
