I've read and re-read and underlined and dog earred the pages of SFG and this year I actually built two 4 squares! My garden is in and several times a day I check to see if anything is up. I am so impatient. This was such an easy process and I think my only mistake is I don't have enough MM in the box, but I am adding gradually. I've had a blast this spring! Thanks for all the guidance on this forum!

Two 4 Ft squares is a great start. I wish my garden was in already, I know AI am impatient, but I did try some seedlings indoors and that has helped my survive my raging Spring Fever. Since the Mel's Mix does settle after being watered in, sometimes you do need to add a bit more to your boxes. But, as you go along and harvest during this season, just add a scoop of compost to each square and you will do great.
We are so glad you joined us. Please keep us updated on your progress,
