I bought Mel's book back in the early 80's and haven't plowed a row since! There are several ideas behind these type of "french beds". One is that you don't have to step inside the garden, so the soil stays "fluffy". The farthest reach to pluck a tomato is 2.5 feet inside the garden. Same for weeding. Also the yield is high using a smaller space. The concept works on patios which is how I got started.

If interested I encourage you to visit the square foot garden site at:

Then come back and chat about it!
Mr. Marsalis I do not see any fruit on your vines Are these ornamental or will they yield fruit
