We used this beautiful day to finish our table top garden! My husband made the box himself and we (me, my husband, and 14 yr old son) mixed the Mel's Mix today. I planted onions! I am using the Planting by Colors along with the ANSFG book. I like how the Planting by Colors tells you exactly when to plant what for your area. We have never gardened, unless you count unsuccessful Topsy Turvys last year! We are so EXCITED to see our SFG!!!

cheers It looks great! I've never heard of Planting by Colors, but it sounds fun. I'll head over to Amazon.com and look for it now.

Great TT. A nice way to begin. I'm sure you'll love the MM way to SFG. Saves so much time, energy and water.

Post  Too Tall Tomatoes on 3/12/2012, 10:55 pm

When I was coming home from the lumber mill today, I decided that I could squeeze in a TT garden right off the patio. It's going to be a 6ft x 3 ft. That'll give me plenty of space to grow stuff that I don't want in my dedicated "Tomato Zone" Twisted Evil
