Belated Hello from SE Iowa

Post  mlr77062 on 5/23/2016, 1:45 pm

I joined the forum over five years ago but never posted.  Didn't have much to add that would be of interest.

My first SFG was created in 1987.  I became aware of Mel's methods via a PBS series.  My first effort was a raised bed with stone borders.  I used 12"x12" cement blocks for walkways/ perimeters.  No grid used.  Many years of usage in Houston, Texas.

My latest are five SFG boxes 4'x4' in Iowa.  I originally used wood strips as urged in the later update.  This spring my grids were in horrible condition.  I had available some surplus 3/8" steel rebar.  I cut each bar to size and fastened with fence staples.  The result was both sturdy, attractive and probably will long out last me.  Last week I posted about this in one of the grid post areas.
