“My name is Meredith and I live in ______ FL with my husband and our [young] daughter. Been prepping now for over a year, and decided to take our little garden patch to the next level. Bought your book and boom, this happened last weekend — a 20’x20’ deep mulch garden bed. We live on 2 acres full of trees and leaves and have been producing what we call “special sauce” (aka mulch and soil) for the last few years for our flower beds.”
“So we have pretty much everything we need on site. I read your book and instantly knew the deep mulch garden was the right choice for us. Wish us luck!!!! Hope you and your family stay well this year.”
You too, Meredith.
In Totally Crazy Easy Florida Gardening I discuss a variety of different gardening methods, including deep mulch gardening. When you have Florida sand it is a constant effort keeping organic matter in the ground. Using leaves to improve the soil is a Good Gardener Best Practice!
If she plants the crops I recommend in the book, this 20 x 20 is going to be very productive. It’s always great to hear from new Florida gardeners who have been inspired by my writing. The methods work – you just gotta get out there and do them.
Good luck, Meredith – and good work.
