sunny living in sunny florida. I have not put in my SFG yet it will be a fall garden first, so for now it is containers. I have used the old SFG method in the past with great results and looking forward to seeing how the new system works. In recycled pots I now have spring onions, tomatoes,eggplant, three different sweet peppers and our native datil hot pepper as well as bush cucs and pattypan squash. Will be planting bush beans on the new moon (april 3).

Glad you found us. You will love the new system with Mel's Mix.
We have several members in FL and they seem to be doing very well with Mel's Mix.

Keep us updated on your progress and post pictures too.

Again, Welcome!

I was going to wait to put in my garden until the land lord did some pluming he needs to dig where I am going to put my garden sometime this summer, but I just got my copy of the ALL NEW SFG and I have decided to let my DB build two 2'x5' table top boxes for me as we can just move them out of the way and then put them back. cheers I will post pics when it is done. I have vegies in pots planted in MM currently so I guess it will be a combo garden. Just planted a heirloom tom called "Black from Tula" I could not resist when I read the lable and it said it produced even in the heat of summer. We will see if it realy does in the florida sun.
