Sanderson. I'm loving this! We have 17.5 acres, but all I can use (thanks to the deer) is a 6x20 balcony and my 16x24 Salad Bar. My style has always been "happy chaos" but now I need to get organized and take control of my space if I want serious production, so I will stay glued to this thread.
Fact Checking: The balcony is only 6x12. It holds the equivalent of 18 squares, but all in containers. I forgot about the strawberry bed, the asparagus bed, and the 3x8 raised bed in the redwoods. I also forgot about the 2x6 and 2x8 boxes on the outside of the Salad Bar. I have plenty of room for an awesome garden. Time to dig out my SFG books and sing along with Sanderson, here.@countrynaturals wrote: Sanderson. I'm loving this!

I plan like crazy when it's the dead of night, the dead of winter, or pouring down rain. Then, when the weather's nice, and it's time to go to work, all my plans go right out the window. Save me, Sanderson!
"Take your time when making your Mel's Mix and be sure to use at least FIVE different compost ingredients. There are some premium compost brands that have 2-3 ingredients in them. That, a composted manure, and then another compost and you're done! We can't make any brand recommendations because composts are usually regional."
