starting to get a lot of visitors. I finally broke the 1,000 visitors per month in January which is big news for me. I haven’t figured out all the tricks on SEO’s and all of that stuff yet to drive traffic to my site and I’ll probably never will figure it out. I’m in the age bracket where all this html and css stuff is very difficult to pick up and learn. Hopefully it’s been helpful to those who have visited. I’m sure getting a lot more visitors than I am comments, and I don’t know what to think about that. So, please post comments if your so inclined. Let me know what you like, what you don’t like, suggestions, etc. However, the big news is this-I sent a copy of my ebook to Mel Bartholomew. He liked it so much that he is selling it on his website-the official SFGF site. He also asked me if I would like to write a book with him. What would you say if he asked you that? So, stay tuned on that one. I’ll be meeting with him later in the month to talk about all sorts of fun things. I ordered some seeds today from Johnny’s. Its going to be a great year, and it’s one that will start a little earlier than usual. I have a reason for doing this that I will talk about later in the year. I do want to get those sugar snap beans in the garden as soon as possible so I will be putting my plastic covers on in another week to start heating up the soil. I’m going to be posting more often as time gets closer and as the season is upon us. My goal with this posted picture wasn’t exactly what I was hoping for. I wanted to show an example of square foot gardening efficiency. As you look at the sugar snap peas, you will notice that they are right in the middle of the squares. To increase the production of these 4 squares what I should have done was this: grow the sugar snaps closer to the back of the garden. Then you will have room to grow 2 heads of lettuce right in front of each square. Or, you could grown carrots, onions, etc.-whatever you like. Now instead of harvesting all those sugar snaps out of 4 little squares, you also would be able to harvest 8 heads of lettuce. I’m pretty sure I have a picture of this very thing in my gallery. You can do all sorts of tricks like this to maximize your space in a square foot garden. If you can build a garden box, fill it with Mel’s mix, and then add a grid, you too can have a garden that gives you a lot of satisfaction…not to mention the good eats it provides….
