I want to have my square foot garden on a table that is at least waist high. I am old and creaky--and know nothing about gardening, but this method looks like maybe I can grow some lettuce, tomatoes, mint, and even a mini watermelon in my backyard--on a table

Welcome to the board from SW Ohio, Sanoma!  A number of members on here are having great success with table-top gardens, and I am sure you will too! 

Here are a couple threads to get you started:

https://squarefoot.forumotion.com/t22272-sanderson-s-table-top-beds?highlight=Table+Top

https://squarefoot.forumotion.com/t20737-my-old-deck-table-top-garden-today?highlight=Table+Top

If you enter "Table Top" in the Search link above, you'll find others as well.

Welcome, Sanoma. I'm in Redding, CA -- similar climate to you -- and I garden in waist-high beds, too. Mine are bottomless, rather than tabletop, however, which shouldn't make much difference. Here is a link to my thread:

Sanoma,  I've been scare for a few days so I am late welcoming you to the Forum.  glad you\'re here  

I know that creaky feeling.  I've been working for 5 days, during a "cool" spell in the 90"s, to make SFG gardening even easier on me.  I'm getting rid of my compost bin and compost tumbler.  I have enjoyed (self-accomplishment) in making my own compost for 6 years.  From now on I will just buy a variety of composts and blend them.

I love table top beds.  They are a little short for planting/seeding in comfort, but perfect for tending and harvesting which is 99% of the time.  Mine are 2' tall as economy of cutting 4 legs from an 8' board, but I am now only 5'3".  For a taller person maybe three (3)  2'8" legs cut from an 8' board would be easier.  Or, use concrete blocks to lift the bed off the ground.  There are many ways to have taller beds.  I like 2' wide beds as a general rule.  If I could have beds on the ground, and had room like Yolos has, I would consider 3' x 5' and 2' x 8' for for various types of crops.

Here are a couple of links.

A year in the life of my urban garden.  I'm in Zone 9A, normally 28*F to 110*F.  I have over head Home Depot shade cloth up for 3 months.  https://squarefoot.forumotion.com/t22075-sanderson-s-urban-sfg-in-fresno-california

My husband making me another table top bed  3 1/2' x 3 1/2'  https://squarefoot.forumotion.com/t22272-sanderson-s-table-top-beds

Since I mentioned Yolos, here are a couple of her threads.  https://squarefoot.forumotion.com/t22034-2018-2019-sfg-in-brooks-ga
