Greetings from FL Panhandle

Post  devilgrrl on 1/7/2013, 12:12 pm

Just finished building ten 4'X8' raised beds. Two of them are 30" deep because we plan on putting carrots and parsnips in them. If anyone knows where I can buy some compost that will deliver, please let me know. Planning on growing corn, pole beans, tomatoes (slicing and sauce types),summer and winter squash and cantaloupe. The smaller beds we grew last season did pretty well, but they were definitely on the shallow side and we relocated all of them.

devilgrrl....Welcome to the forum. I'll be interested to watch your posts in that area. We plan to move to the Panhandle in the next few years. It'll be a big change from the north country of Maine.

You have lots of good-sized beds and deep. Lucky you. I hope to see lots of pics as your garden progresses.

Sorry I can't help you with sources from this distance.

welcome

Check your local Craigslist for compost or manure or for local farms that sometimes give it away. Be sure to get 5 different kinds - Have you read the All New Squarefoot Gardening book?
Also Home Depot had vermiculite and many types of compost. I just ordered vermiculite and Ecoscraps(which is all fruit/veg compost with no fillers) compost and found HD was offering free shipping with a $45 min order. My order should be here within the week and the compost was not available at my local store.
