Not Newto SQF just this forumn

Post  LeAnneDeardeuff on 3/6/2012, 1:33 pm

Hi, my name is LeAnne.
I am from NW Missouri. I have been doing Square Foot Gardening for 15 years. I started in raised beds with the old book. We made dirt from sand and topsoil and manure back then. Boy it had lots of weeds. I love the New Mel's mix. This year I am redoing my beds to take the old stuff out that had Goat and Cow dung in it and replacing it with rabbit and chicken. I hated to garden until I read Mel's first book. And the second one is better! Now I jump at the bit until I can get out there and get my hands dirty!!!

I love planting my pumpkins and squashes so they hang in the air! So fun!

Time to plant spring crops! I am out of here! Laughing

Hi LeAnne and welcome to the Forum.


I have seen women looking at jewelry ads with a misty eye and one hand resting on the heart, and I only know what they're feeling because that's how I read the seed catalogs in January - Barbara Kingsolver - Animal, Vegetable, Miracle

Another member that started out with the old SFG method and converted to the ANSFG method. It really is a much easier way to garden.

Glad to have you join us, and please keep us updated on your progress.
