How does your garden grow? Our square foot garden update

Our square foot garden is growing like CRAZY!
(One of our sun flowers is somewhere between 9 and 10 feet tall! I think we need a ladder to measure!)

We have PUMPKINS growing vertically!!!!

We've already harvested a couple of cucumbers, summer squash, and beans!

YUM! Yeah for summer, and yeah for square foot gardening!

Love the idea of a square fot garden! This is a great project that any family could try. I'm writing on behalf of the KEEN Recess Team. Recess is a rallying cry for kids and adults to take a break from the daily grind, get outside, and create their own playground. Thanks for sharing your stories!

Have a great summer!
