The name says it all....

Post  garden_noob on 5/29/2010, 6:17 pm

I'm apparently in Eden and it's a good thing since I know very little. I know seeds go in dirt and need water. Beyond that I'm running blind.

I've got a 4 x 4 bed in which I'm planting watermelon, zucchini, crook neck squash, carrots, lettuce, pole beans, onions (scallions) and bell peppers. The mix is 2/3 compost and 1/3 course vermiculite (learned that at Dirt Time '09). I've got an automated drip system already in place but not sure if I should do drip or low spray.

I've also got 3 tomato plants in a half whiskey barrel growing like mad in a compost and mulch mix. My wife did the mixture, I just dropped the little seedlings in. They're not growing because of gardening skill I can tell you that.

Anyway, that's what I'm doing and anyone in the South West region forum will be hearing from me regularly I suspect.

Thanks.

Sounds like fun. I have done plenty of gardening in the past with limited success for a lot of work. I LOVE this method. It is still a fight between me and various critters, but nothing I can't take care of.

Happy gardening.
