Hi to everyone! I'm a newbie oldie. Did sfg for 2 years in the early 1990s using the older sfg book. I bought the new one and am all excited to get this one going using mel's mix, etc. We have a relatively short growing season so learning ways to extend that. Just made the boxes, bought the ingredients, started seed (a bit late) and am ready to go. Have thought sfg is the best for a long time. So happy to be here!

My experience with sfg in the '90s was much more labor intensive. I dug down about 12" and added amendments as needed. Unfortunately, the first year's garden ended up being more in the shade than I would have liked, but it was still successful. My kids were young and thrilled to go out to the garden and eat peas off the vine to their heart's content. The walkways had 12" wide boards or cardboard (don't remember). The next year I relocated the sfg garden to a brighter location. Dug again, added amendments, etc. Lots of work, but I was up for it.
I want to start my own compost pile asap. Every time I throw away good compost stuff from the kitchen, I wince and the waste! Doing a lot of reading about composting. If you have suggestions, please share!

Welcome, nhlori: I was lucky in that I when I started I had read the 1981 book from cover to cover. I had it on my bookshelf for a number of years and was about to start the next day digging, when I decided to go online, found this forum and discovered there was a later version of the book which was NO-DIG. Saved me so much work as my land has numerous rocks left behind when the glaciers retreated from this Columbia River valley a few thousand years ago. A bit before my time.

You are right about starting a compost heap. At the very least, save everything and pile it in a heap. Mother Nature will see to it if you do not have time to work on it and you will get something good.
