    I used fishing string and it worked really well.  Stapled the ends to the sides and tied a knot around the staples.

    This is a practical methods. Indeed, this square foot gardening is not just the best for beginners but for every homeowners who are enthusiast in gardening. It is very nice to grow vegetables in limited space with different crops in your own garden. You can pick fresh and healthy vegetables whenever you want them the most.

    I get my soil mixed at the local soil/rock place I forget the name, but anyway, every spring I get ten cubic yards of half pine fines and half compost for about 300 with delivery. It usually lasts all year depending on how many beds I create. One truck could probably have filled all those beds you just made! 😉

    I don't know if you answered this in another video as I watch most of them but not all but when adding in the new compost do you lift the drip tubes before adding or just brush it away from them?

    hey! we used stainless steel wire to grid ours out this year as well. I like using it because it is very neat and it doesn't interfere with growth whatsoever. we also wound the wire around screws. and I play with the wires like an instrument like you did too while setting it up LOL! we may be half a continent apart, but yet we do the same things ~Amanda

    Great idea with the stainless steel wire. I use a collapsible/foldable grid that I got the idea from MichiganSnowPony. I rare have to use it but what I like is that it never gets in my way since it doesn't stay on the beds and I can use it anywhere.

    @MrTerrym1964 John, one more thing, as my garden is in full swing, can I just broadcast the rock dust over the top of my triple mix and water it in? Thanks again John.

  • MrTerrym1964 4 years ago

    I just found it! Thanks a million, I am going to pick it up tomorrow morning. After your reply I googled gaiagreen and found a supplier named GROWERS CHOICE HYDROPONICS. Wow, thanks again John, you rock….pardon the pun.

    should be easy to find in Ontario. The Gaia Green Glacial rock dust I buy in California is IMPORTED from Canada.. Try gaiagreen. c o m and do a search for stores in Ontario to find a place near you that carries Gaia Green. They can order the rock dust

    I think mels mix is a "good" mix. I saw it at lowes the other day, it was like $10 a bag! WOAH!! It may be good, but not $10 Good for a few cubic feet. My compost is $21 for a cubic yard. add a bag of rock dust to that cubic yard for $15, and I have $36 for 27 cubic feet. I would say find a locally produced organic compost (call a garden center) or make "your own mix" using rock dust, a good compost, vermiculite and peat moss. Experiment to find out what works best!

    The square foot garden method absolutely works!!! Good video John!

    @growingyourgreens It could also be from over watering. Nitrogen is easy to add to the garden. Just toss in used coffee grounds.
