Welcome, Alice!  I'm in Northwest Arkansas (Zone 6b) but grew up in Central Arkansas and lived a few years in South Arkansas.  Glad to see another Arkansan in the forum.

i thought i had awhile ago. i wasnt able to start it at that time. iam going to go with a 2x2 to at least get a start. iam still making the layout and whats going to go in and where. my hopes and dreams with it? a fully functioning garden with a means to have actual fresh vegtables and be less dependent on stores for it

Welcome, Crystalspider5!  Ohio here!  A 2x2 is perfect to get started...have you read Mel Bartholomew’s All New Square Foot Gardening?  It is great info, any library has it.  Do you have your box yet?  Can’t wait to hear your thoughts, plans!  
glad you\'re here
