Saying Hello

Post  Carrcian on 1/29/2012, 3:37 pm

Hi from the area near Shreveport Louisiana. We had a normal garden last year all fenced in to protect it from deer but soon the garden was overrun with weeds. Last summer's drought was deadly and even with soaker hoses, timers, and yard mulch, the plants took a major toll. My wife and I came the SF garden book last fall and decided to give it a try this year. My first 4 x 4 garden is completed and yesterday, I finished bldg my first protective cage, finding the parts for the trellis, still need to get the nylon netting from this site or via Home Depot. I look forward to learning and sharing stories with everyone.

Regards,

Brian

Welcome from the far north. You'll be able to get an earlier spring start than many of us who will be filled with envy. Enjoy the new gardening method.

Welcome!

Glad you've read the book! Did you have any trouble finding the ingredients for Mel's Mix in your area?

Welcome Brian! And on having read the book!
Most things here make lots more sense when you've read the book. There are some great folks here eager to share their time and expertise with you to make sure you have a great 1st year Square Foot Garden.
Again, Welcome Very Happy
