Planning my 1st Square Foot Garden

Post  Ages on 3/31/2010, 9:44 am

Hi Folks you can call me Ages! I'm new to square foot gardening and am really looking forward to getting started. I'm reading Mel's latest book and am chomping at the bit to build my boxes. Most folks here in El Paso, TX have already started planting so I'm going to be just a little behind them. I am looking forward to building the boxes next week with the help of my wife, son and daughter (getting the whole family involved in this ). And I've already started tracking down the mix. Boy that Vermiculite is hard to find in bulk. I've also been poking my nose around the forums and getting a feel for the site. Looks like this is quite a friendly place that has a lot of good people willing to help each other out. I'll put up some pics as we go along. Nice to be here!
