Hi, my name is Erin and I have started my first real garden. I am sooo excited and exhausted at the same time. It is so much work to get a garden started. I never realized how much was involved. Wow! I have been reading and learning so much. I have been a lurker for quite a while. We had already started the garden when I discovered Mel's book. We now have 4 4x8 beds filled with Mel's mix and we have built numerous other beds filled with 6 different types of compost and a few other amendments, I guess you'd call them. I have started numerous seeds and have them under the lights and a few have already been planted out. It is all so rewarding. And the excitement you get when the little seeds are popping up, I just love it. So my family thinks I'm crazy! But so what, this gardening thing is AWESOME!!!

Hi Erin & welcome to the Forum. You've certainly started out in a big way (guess it's that TEXAS thing). LOL
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
