First SFG Box

Post  BillOcala on 2/15/2012, 5:27 pm

Built my first SFG box this past weekend (a 2 x 12) and I transplanted 9 tomato plants into it Tuesday. Using an improvised row cover made of semi-circular fencing with clear plastic over top to make a "greenhouse" in case we get any more North Central Florida Nights like last weeks surprise cold wave.

Added marigolds, petunias a large geranium and some onions after work today - pretty much done with this box for now (except the irrigation and more permanent protectiopn from Raccoons, squirrels and other critters...

Sounds like you are off and running !! It always nice to get the beds done and sit back and wait to see the things produce Smile It gives us time to "think"

Welcome to the group! Look forward to more about your garden. We love pictures also !

I'm a bit envy. It was in the teens last weekend. Heck, I haven't even started my seeds yet. I ain't complaining, because we usually have very nice spring weather.
