Another one joins SFG

Post  ralphehowardjr on 5/26/2011, 7:16 pm

Hello. I'm Ralph from the southwest corner of Denver, Ken Caryl plains side to be exact. While I have been growing in a traditional vegetable garden for close to 20 years, I am new to SFG. Closest I have come are Earth Boxes that I bought this year. I look forward to the advice and friendliness offered here!

We are very glad to have you join us.

Have you finished reading ALL NEW SQUARE FOOT GARDENING yet? That book is now my go to book when I have questions. I love my Mel's Mix.

How many SFG beds are you using this year? This is going to be such a change from traditional gardening for you. It is amazing how easy it is to plant, weed and nurture your SFG. Of course, building the boxes and preparing your Mel's Mix is a workout, but once that hard work is done, no tilling, next to no weeding, and great veggies.

Please keep us posted on your progress and just so you know, we love pictures so be sure to share yours.

Again, Welcome, and let us know if you have questions.

Welcome. Welcome.


I have seen women looking at jewelry ads with a misty eye and one hand resting on the heart, and I only know what they're feeling because that's how I read the seed catalogs in January - Barbara Kingsolver - Animal, Vegetable, Miracle
