For what it's worth, Mel's Mix didn't give me good results. And I followed the instructions/formula to the letter. Beans and corn were so-so. Peppers, eggplants, and tomatoes did not grow well.

This past spring I tried a lasagna garden and it's doing quite well. Material-wise, the lasagna method was a lot cheaper than making Mel's Mix.

I do use the SFG plant-spacing guidelines, though.

Here's a picture of one section of my plot taken last week. The "lasagna layers" were set down on 4/30. I planted the corn and beans on May 8. As you can see, they are very closely spaced. Everything is growing strong.

Overwhelmed? There's a lot to see here. Try starting at our homepage.
