Idea: Square Foot Gardening Template Tool

I am in love with these tools. Seriously. After one use, I wondered where this square foot gardening template tool had been all my life.

If you have raised beds and do square foot gardening make these. We have them in 4, 9, and 16 plants per square foot. If you don't have raised beds I would still consider making a modified version of these. 

The premise in square foot gardening is that the close plant spacing is possible because water and soil fertility can be closely monitored. However, creating a few of these for whatever is the most common row or plant spacing you use can definitely help. Whatever saves time helps, right?!?

Even though we have an inexpensive seeder like this and hope to get a much nicer seeder like this these wooden ones can help in a pinch. Sure better than using your finger or a stick.

If you are a DIYer then you will love these how-to instructions on how to make your own square foot gardening template tool. 

If you aren't a DIY kinda person we will be making a few of these babies and bringing them with us for early markets. Possibly will add them to our store. We will keep you posted on that.
