One Happy Customer!

Crystal of Everyday Food Storage saw our ad for Home Gardens To Go  in a local mailer and called me back in April.  She was thrilled and amazed that we were experts in Square Foot garden and could actually install some Square Foot Gardens at her home. She had attempted to Square Foot Garden a number of times without success.  As I chatted with her we discovered that she had tried to cut costs when making Mel's Mix and that had proved the demise of her gardening attempts. I was proud of Crystal for not giving up. She had always felt that having a productive garden should be part of a food storage plan but just didn't have success.  We started with a plot that grows weeds really well.  I recommended covering the entire space with weed cloth so she had a man do it for her.  Here are before and after photos.
We provided Crystal with our drip irrigation systems that have worked like a charm. She has a water connection for every box and timers that turn on the drip systems every other day for 55 minutes(mountain desert climate).   SFG'S really need water often and consistently to produce an abundant yield.  Now I am proud to show off her harvest.  She is one happy customer who is super busy baking and freezing all of her delicious garden vegetables
