Hullo everyone

Post  Ole_Rascal on 4/1/2013, 11:53 am

Hello from San Tan Valley, AZ. I am brand new to gardening and have some friends that recommended doing it the square foot way. I am just about to build my first 3x3 garden today. We'll see how it goes.

Welcome to the forum. Here is a bit of a heads up about
Mel's Mix


40 years a gardener and going strong with SFG.

There are certain pursuits which, if not wholly poetic and true, do at least suggest a nobler and finer relation to nature than we know. The keeping of bees, for instance. ~ Henry David Thoreau


Outlander is outstanding!

Thanks for the heads up. I took the easy way out and bought the Mel's Mix from HomeDepot. I want to get a good start.

Do you have it delivered, or did your local store hve it available there? I ask because mine is supposed to get delivered today and I paid an exhorbitant deivery charge just before learning of the $55 max that Rooster posted about this weekend. So I am now in dispute with Home Depot overthe delivery price.
