Hello, newbie gardener here. This is my second year gardening and my first year SFG. I thought I'd share some pics with ya'll.

My boyfriend built my box, even though I was going to do it myself, because he believes women and power tools are unnatural Newbie Here, My SFG! Icon_rolleyes :

Newbie Here, My SFG! BoxBuilder-vi

Here is the finished box. It's 2 ft x 10 ft due to the fact that the only place in the yard that gets sun all day is about 2 ft x 10ft. I hadn't put the liner in yet because I didn't have the fence up yet and I didn't want my dogs to tear up the liner:
Newbie Here, My SFG! FinishedBox-vi

Here is the fenced area with the trellis up. I trellised off the 2 4ft areas of the box and left the middle untrellised hopefully this will work, does anybody know? Or do I need to trellis the whole thing?
Newbie Here, My SFG! SfgArea-vi

I know the fence seems kind of high to just keep the dogs out but:

Newbie Here, My SFG! Thekids-vi
With 2 dobermans and a great dane, the fence has to be rather high. The dobermans jump over fences and the dane is taller than most fences! Newbie Here, My SFG! Icon_lol

Here is the box filled and gridded. The grid is just some 1 inch molding that I found at Menards I drilled holes and put it together with nuts and bolts then, I screwed the short ends to the box:
Newbie Here, My SFG! GridsIn-vi

The boxs are ready to be planted, My youngest snuck through the gate to help:

Newbie Here, My SFG! Mommyshelper-vi

The seeds are in. I have carrots, beets, radishes, marigolds, and onions although the onions went in late. I haven't filled the other sqaures yet because it's not time to plant those yet.

Newbie Here, My SFG! SeedsIn-vi

Anyway, that's my square foot garden area. Thanks for looking!

What a lovely SFG you have! I know you will enjoy it!! You have gorgeous fur babies too!

I put a small bird bath in my garden area today. Next thing I knew my grand dog, Bella the boxer was drinking from it!! I knew she would though!!

First time SFG girl here too !! Fourth year working on gardening. I love your set up, well planned !! It is so well put together and neat! I like how you have the trellis set up in the back. We too have fur babies to keep out of the garden. Our fence is just shorter :-D

Happy Gardening

I am helping an old classmate with her first SFG and this was her solution to protecting her garden from her little furbabies! Very Happy
