Just wanted to say hi. Last year I joined a community garden at my church and it was my first garden in 20 years. This year I received the new SFG book and am going to try it for the Spring as my garden plot is only a 10x10. Hoping to increase yield and have better luck. Last year was great but I had some issues with pests and we are organic only.  Looking forward to trying something new this Spring, Ken

Hi Ken, Welcome to the Forum from California! glad you\'re here That 10'x10' plot will hold two 4' x 10' beds and produce as much, if not more, as the whole plot. Once you have read the book, you will understand the value of raised beds with Mel's Mix and grids. Trellises can easily be fastened to the wood beds for vining plants and tall tomatoes, etc. We love photos so please post your adventure here.

Hi, Ken, and welcome from your neighbor to the south, Ohio! Great to see you on the forums!  I have been an organic gardener for well over 60 years - as the song goes, I was Organic before Organic was cool - and to me it is the only way to raise healthy food.  A couple points for you to consider, to add to Sanderson's comments: 1) Raised beds with MM will eliminate weed seed, and will provide healthy nutrition to your plants; and 2) While you are at somewhat a disadvantage for pests from neighboring gardens, the healthier your plants are, the less pests you will have - pests always seed the weakest plants for their feast.

Best of luck with your garden this year!
