Measure twice; cut once? Ha! I forgot to even measure once. I knew the width of these things, because I had to make an end piece, but I never measured the length. I just assumed they were 8 feet.
Turns out they're 11 1/2 feet long. Ah, well. More space to produce. I think I'll put the pumpkins in the big irregular spots in the middle.
This is part of a series. Go back to the start or continue on to the next part.
By the way, I'm cheating by not buying the book or reading anything but other gardeners' blog posts about Square Foot Gardening, so don't take anything I do as an example of the canon.
