Thanks for adding me , and thanks for the welcome via pm .   I'm in the UK , Cheshire north west .

I'm a Gardener by trade since 1991 , but only started growing veg 2 years ago .

My plot is small in my garden which has a koi pond , lawn and decking area , not a big Garden .

I have a cheap 4 x 4 green house , and 15 x 8 feet for square foot gardening , less the pathway I've put in , will post pics up soon and show you peeps where  i'm at and share the season with you .

Thanks

Mel

Mel, welcome from Ohio in the U.S.!  I spent a couple years stationed near Oxford, and toured the Liverpool area many times - that area reminded me of the U.S. Midwest where I was from.

Looking forward to seeing the pictures of your gardens. There is a wealth of information available here on the forum, so don't hesitate to use the Search tool to find archived knowledge.

Hello Mel,
 Welcome to the site , I'm a hundred or so mile south of you just off the west end of the M4  , to the north north east of it  between Penygroes & Llandybie , been doing ANSFG ( all new square foot gardening )  for a fair while ( since I joined the site )  But had actually been doing it unknowingly in Mel's original form  of square foot gardening for almost 30 years .

 I migrated to the soil less mode that Mel came up with in 2010 just after we moved houses & find it far superior to his original method that combined MM with mother earth . 

Welcome to the site . Do you make your own home made composts yet? 
Some of the things we do turn  old fashioned gardening on its head.. 

All my 36 inch high raised brick built beds ( about 220 sq ft )  are filled with the thing referred to as " Mel's Mix"   to a depth of about two feet . It took me a while but the effort is well worth it .
 In the gallery area of the site are some of our crops the 42 inch runner bean  was delicious , not even a hint of being stringy . 

As a result I grow some amazing crops the like of which I've rarely ever had in 51 years of gardening as an adult using manured or enhanced mother natures soil .

 In my strap line  are details of the book we use to guide us ,  so we can all sing off the same hymn sheet . 

There is a third edition available .

I'm not on site so often these days now my beds are well established and easy to work , if you need get hold of me to drop me a PM , it comes up in my emails 

Dave aka Plantoid 

PS 
" Composting 101"  is a thread title in  our site that you may find very useful .
