Hi,

Would appreciate feedback regarding the following SFG plan.  I'm still new at this, and really didn't have a great harvest last summer, so any thoughts would be appreciated.

I didn't mark the carrots as being staggered, but I'd be direct seeding one square a week for the next six weeks.

I'm in zone 7a, in Suffolk County on Long Island.

I'm glad you gave the summer squash a lot of room. They are such bed hogs. I would plant the broccoli and kale in adjacent squares and cover with bridal tulle to keep the white butterfly and her green caterpillars from eating them. Small lettuces can be planted 4 or even 9 per square. They will benefit from some bridal tulle also as the white butterfly will use them as a secondary nursery. Have you amended the beds with enough blended composts to bring the level back up to original heights?

Did you use at least 2" of compost (not soil amendment, potting soil, raised bed soil, etc.) for your Mel's Mix last year? I'm wondering why you didn't have the garden you hoped for last summer.

My 2nd year was better, too. Could it be microbes in the soil? Is "new" medium just too sterile? I used dirt instead of MM, so I don't know if my theory applies here or not.
