I am a new square foot gardener and wanted to share my plans with you. I tried doing them on graph paper, but I wanted much more control. I am a graphic designer by profession, so I created my garden plan in Adobe InDesign using tables (and cell styles).  I also wrote a blog article about it on one of the websites I write for.

To figure out where each plant was to go, I consulted a companion planting guide, but I had to make some changes along the way, after insects infested my kale which I decided to rip out), and some of my squash died. But my actual garden is mostly the same as how I drew up these plans. Now that the squashes and tomatoes are getting bigger, I can mostly tell them apart without having to consult my plan every day. 

I also keep a shopping list in the white space on the left, and a to-do list in the white space on the right.

Just a note ... some kale is less attractive to bugs. I had aphids all over my dino kale last year, but they were much less interested in my russian winter kale that was planted right next to it. And frequently the russian kale had no aphids at all.

Mine was subtly aromatic, so maybe that turned the bugs off.

Hi Kelly, Such a pretty chart! I think most of us end up erasing and scribbling in different plants until you can't recognize it! Embarassed Do you have trellises along one side of the boxes?

Regarding aphids on something. Sometimes, a plant takes one for the team. If it keeps bugs off neighbors, it may be worth it. Just thinking out loud.

Wow...  VERY nice chart!

The only thing I've had problems with on aphids so far is pink hull peas.  So far...  But I haven't tried kale yet.
