Hi everyone!  I just wanted to pop on and say hello.  I used to post here a few years ago and suddenly life (and work) got in the way!  I'm going to be resurrecting my SFG next spring and am eager to start planning.  I'm also planning to clear some landscaped areas of my property to provide more room for edibles.  I plan to retire in 15 months and would like to devote more time to gardening and food storage.  It's a love of mine that's I've neglected too long.

Hi Susan, Welcome to the Forum. Gardening in Zone 9 can be a challenge just staying on top of the watering and fertilizing in the summer. I learned from experience that sticking to the Mel's mix formula is the way to go. It was pretty foreign to me, and I was skeptical that all the ingredients were necessary. I cut corners in the beginning and got away with it in the winter and spring, with plants that required lower demands for water and fertilizer. But Summer rolled around and I had to watch my plants droop over in the heat and struggle to maturity. Stick with the SFG book's formula, and you will be off to a good start. Don't forget that we got your back, so when things come up, just ask anything- there's no judging here, we're pretty good at steering you in the right direction.

Hello! Empty Good to be back

Life is good here on Kauai.  I had planted a bunch of seeds for asparagus and we now have the wonderful spears popping up.  We will harvest  now and again in six months. Our lettuces and other greens are thriving as well as mung beans, Emirate pole beans and kabocha squash.

Hello! Empty Hi - I'm new

Post  3kfasnacht on 10/15/2020, 7:14 pm

Hi Susan; this is Kat in North Central Florida. I'm new here, and I've been retired about a year. Congratulations!! I'm finally having time to do the gardening I've always wanted to do. Got out my copy of Square Foot Gardening and am reading it cover to cover and I have 3 gardens going and getting ready to put in another one.
