    I tried the SF garden many yrs ago using the Mel’s mix. I had good initial
    results but my garden was not in a close by location & out of sight = out
    of mind, so I ended up scraping the whole thing recently after it filled up
    with weeds. :(

  2. Amanda Levy

    My word…your babies are beautiful! I just wanna squeeze on ’em a bit 😀
    Thanks for your great ideas!

    m new at gardening. What compost do you recommend from Home depot?

  4. Ann Thrash-Trumbo

    Nicely done! I used square-foot gardening at our last house and loved it.
    I did use the Mel’s Mix and it worked well in our Midwestern clime. One
    thing I did was used eyelet screws to hold the rope. It worked well and I
    didn’t have any problem with hurting myself on the eyelets even though
    they stuck up probably 1/2 inch from the surface of the wooden raised bed.
    Good luck with yours!
