    Really great information! Thanks UFI! I found the information on the Sun-O-Gram especially helpful. I’ve been struggling to map out my garden space.

    I live in Miami-Dade county & "solarizing the soil with black sheet plastic at least a month covering barren ground in the late summer will take care of pest, disease, weed & grass & nematodes. After taking the black plastic off & tilling in bagged cow manure will help to put back in healthy bacteria. I learned not solarizing the soil can & will cause problems. Plus mulching the soil durning the late spring & throughout the summer helps & broadcasting say some 8-8-8 fertilizer & tilling it in before planting gives the soil N-P-K elements that are beneficial & watering the sandy Florida soil everyday or the plants will start wilting after 2-3 days.
