In this video I talk about my end of season thoughts on our Mittleider garden and what worked and didn’t work. Our Mittleider tomato bed is growing with 2 different soils. On one side we had 75% sawdust and 25% sand, and on the other side is organic garden soil. The gardens that I didn’t follow the Mittleider method did NOT work out. Next year I am focusing on going to ONLY Mittleider and follow the book more closely. links on where to buy the Mittleider book and micro nutrients below.

    I think you've done an amazing job! You're a Mom with young children and you work and have all the gardening to do! Great job! And thanks for doing the comparison – that's so very helpful. — Did you do a garden this (2016) year? I don't see videos for that and I'd love to. — It's lovely to see a "real" person who has other things going on in their life and not just their garden – it makes it so much more relatable. Thank you!

  • Wow, imagine what you'd have if you weren't so forgetful. Maybe gardening isn't your thing, but you make awesome videos. Thanks for sharing!!!

    I've learned I needed to keep my grand garden ideas in check to match the time available to tend to the garden. In the spring I have visions of fields of vegetables growing and want to expand and add to my existing two 4'x16' beds, but by late summer as the garden is in peak production I find myself thankful I've limited my ambitions, and even then those two beds are a challenge at times to keep up with. Yet I've also done side-by-side comparisons between Mittleider gardening and Square Foot Gardening (I've always gardened the SFG way), and I also found the MGM more productive. This past year was the first year I was completely MGM (though I continue to use soil rather than sand/sawdust) and 2016 I'll be installing the automatic watering system to make it one less chore to do with the garden. Thanks for updating us on your successes and "teachable moments." :)
