I posted this a few months ago: "found this Forum in Feb 2013 while searching for some forgotten veggie-growing topic. It was either through Google or YouTube. I then ordered a used ANSFG 1st Ed on eBay and a few days later I had 4 small boxes. I haven't stopped since."

6 years ago I was in the library looking for a book my father-in-law used to get his veggies going, Alan Chadwick's French Intensive Gardening. I stumbled upon "The Square Foot Gardening" book, and realized  that Mel's method was far easier than double digging beds and planting rows of veggies that I couldn't possibly consume (all those row crops ripening at that same time). I read it from cover to cover and built boxes, ordered a custom soil blend and set out to grow things in a far easier way. My only regret is that Mel hadn't published the second edition before I built 6, 18" deep boxes that took 1530 cubic feet of mix; I could have gotten away with less than 1/3 of the amount of mix, and spent 1/3 of what I had to fork out for redwood boxes. I'm still learning as I go- the biggest thing I've learned is to pay attention to Mel's Mix ingredients. I've tweaked it and replaced the peat with coconut coir and it seems to hold more precious water.

I found the Forum because it was mentioned in the Certified Instructor training.
