Kevin Espiritu of Epic Gardening posted a video as a "Master Class in Square Foot Gardening".  As with any instructional video, there are good points and misleading points, and one must ignore the product promotions, but overall it is a good video.

For beginners, I would caution:

1. Fluff the peat moss before measuring.
2. Measure each of the 3 ingredients so they are in equal portions.
3. Only 6" of Mel's Mix is needed for 97% of our veggies. Washed sand or sandy loam topsoil can be used in the lower 5" of a 1' deep bed, creating a never-shrinking base for the Mel's Mis When it comes time to add more compost for the next crop, one will know how much compost is needed, be it 1" more or less. Mix it into the Mel's Mix.
4. When mixing the 3 ingredients, mist the ingredients to keep down the dust and fine particles. When adding to the bed in shallow layers, really wet the mix. Use the shower head. It's hard to over wet MM but it can be easy to under-wet it. MM drains so well that the next day, even a wet bed the day before can be planted or direct sowed.
5. KNOW your gardening Zone. Check with your county Master Gardeners or Ag Extension for a vegetable planting guide. Where I live in Zone 9B, brassicas, radishes, beets, carrots, peas, etc. are cool weather plants and are planted/sowed early fall for winter harvesting. Tomatoes, peppers, beans, eggplant are warm weather crops and are planted/sowed in the spring. In upstate NY, Both cool weather and warm weather crops are planted at the same general time in the spring. Learn when to plant potatoes and garlic in your area.
