    This is actually super helpful. I've been trying to grow veggies and I think I need to start in a square foot garden. Have you ever tried growing veggies and if so do you have any tips?

      Glad you like it. I've tried growing a bit but mostly just lettuce and rocket. I tried growing pumpkins but the slugs made light work of them. Apparently you're supposed to put pumpkins on a plank of wood to keep them away from the ground.

      Also, if you half-bury a cup of cider, it attracts slugs and snails and does for them what they would do for your lettuce.

        Amazing tip! Stuff like that should be in an infographic too!
