Hi MBroman, It's nice to see a second generation SFG! And, a third one in training. Have you read All New Square Foot Gardening? No more dirt or tilling, same results.

When planting tomato seeds inside for an early start, only put 1.5" of soil/MM in the bottom of the cup. As the plants grow and get leggy under artificial or inadequate light, add more soil/MM. This step saves the extra step of transplanting young toms.  Cool

Be patient. Carrots and radishes -- especially icicle types -- can take a whole lot longer than advertised. Rolling Eyes (Probably already posted, but I need constant reminders. tongue)

Give things a chance to come back from last year before starting over. My "dead" chives from last winter came up again on their own, better than before. Very Happy
