Hello from S.E. Georgia!

Post  Tfloyd on 5/22/2015, 11:40 pm

I am new to SFG, new to forums (scary), and I hope I am posting correctly..... 

I have three 4 X 4 boxes with veggies, herbs, and flowers.  I'm getting a late start this year and it is already pretty hot (99 for the past three days).  I read something about mulch on top of the mix.  I'm not sure if I need that or not.  

Anyways, I am extremely excited to have started my SFGs!   Very Happy

Hello Tfloyd.  Welcome from Brooks, Ga, about 30 miles south of the Atlanta Airport.  I can't live without mulch.  This heat just sucks out the moisture.  I predominately use wheat straw.

Thanks!  Would pine straw work just as well?  I have a ton of it around my yard.

Tfloyd, Welcome to the Forum from California! glad you\'re here You have come to a good place. This is the only Forum I personally belong to. We are a friendly and gabby bunch and are more than happy to help. Bedding straw, pine straw (needles) and wood chips are probably the most common mulches.

Yes, pine straw works just as well.  I have it in all my landscaping all around the house and down the driveway and I get tired of looking at it so I use wheat straw in the veggie beds and pine bark nuggets in the aisles.   The wheat straw does have weed seeds in it but at the end of the season I put it in my compost pile to decompose completely and start over with fresh wheat straw in the veggie garden.
