This is a new thread. The narrative and graphic are from the SFG Foundation.

Mel tirelessly researched all the ways to make gardening simpler and "fixed" everything he hated about gardening. The result is Square Foot Gardening which he introduced in the mid-1970s. Part of this was limiting the size. Compared to a traditional row garden, SFG takes only 20% of the space!

From last Wednesday, May 15, 2019

Square Foot Gardening is GREAT for both beginning and "seasoned" gardeners. Beginners love the simplicity, while others love the challenge of planning to use each square 2 and even 3 times per growing season for maximum production.

BEGINNERS - no matter what method you choose, we encourage you to start small. Learn how to grow just a few veggies at first, THEN expand your garden as you become more proficient.

What I liked about it as a beginner, was the structure. I always felt Mel was right there holding my hand. Back then, I was on AOL and we had a very active forum for SFG. Everyone referred to the big guy as "Uncle Mel." It was like having a family farm. It was such a great experience, that when I was able to start gardening again in 2016, I went right for the SFG forum to hang my hat. BIG hug

Ditto for me back in 2013. SFG just made so much sense and with a tiny back yard, I felt it was the right way to go.

I have to heartily agree with this tenant. No palms, no knees, no feet. "Stay Off!"

Part one of 4 Parts.

"Next month we’re celebrating World SFG Day, so we’re taking about the very beginning – before Mel had invented Square Foot Gardening. This is Part 1 of a 4-part series on the birth of Square Foot Gardening we’re calling Pitfalls of Conventional Gardening."

HA! I have the book, so I don't have to wait for next Wednesday to read the next part. Razz  Think about what an adventure gardening has been for us, then just imagine what it was like for Mel. Shocked
