Just wanted to say hello from the Central Coast of California! I have been gardening in California (zone 10) most of my adult life but fairly recently moved to the Central Coast which is zone 8 and it sometimes has me flummoxed! I recently lost my father -- a VERY LONG TIME gardener -- so I'll be looking for advice, I'm sure.

Most of my gardening is done in raised beds (we have pesky gophers) but I haven't really tried the square foot gardening method much so I will be interested in learning more about it. I have the original 1981 book but sounds like it's time to update to the latest version!

Here's last year's garden in the Spring (sorry for the duplicates...still trying to figure out how things work on this site!):

LGM, I'm sorry about your father. We will try to help you with your gardening the best we can.

As TrolleyDriver recommended, read All New Square Foot Gardening, 1st, 2nd or 3rd Edition. It will give you an idea of what to do to tweak your already beautiful garden to SFG.
