Hi All, I'm brand new to the forum...but have been using raised beds for several years in North Florida - just across the creek south of Jacksonville. Originally from NY where I've had many great row gardens - so learning new things all the time.

First mistake - I made my raised beds way too big....SO i"m starting over with Mel's new book - one at a time. I have a couple of 8 x 2's along the fence I'm digging out all the soil and putting in Mel's Mix....I found a large 4 cu ft bag of vermiculite, hen manure and bat Guana at a local nursery in JAX and cow manure and mushroom stuff at Lowes, along with Peal moss. I'll start mixing this weekend and hope to get the first SFG box planted over the weekend. Then I'll start on the next one. Some of the big beds were planted before I read the book.

The orchids do wonderfully well around the pool, but the garden always seems to be hot and dry most of the summer. The rain barrel overflows with the storms, and seems to dry up in between, or else drip out so slowly it does little good. i guess water is my biggest problem. Although last year i had an infestation of tomato hornworms that took out most of the tomatoes.

Anyway a new year, a new start.
