Hi! I'm new :)

Post  Andreaaa on 3/10/2012, 1:33 am

Hi everyone.. I'm so stoked to have found this forum and learn things from other people that are in my area. We are new to SFG. We have 2 4x4 boxes built and filled with Mel's Mix, and will soon be building another 2x5. We are still trying to figure out when to plant what, which seems to be the biggest challenge right now. Anyways, it looks like there are tons of old posts to go through to maybe get my questions answered. Does anyone offer any kind of classes in my area? (Menifee)

glad you\'re here Andreaaa!

I'm not familiar with CA but Chopper (one of the regional hosts) always puts up a monthly "What to plant this month" type of post for her area. Maybe that could help? Be sure to check out posts in your region in the regional threads of the forum.

It sounds like you are off to a GREAT start and have read the ANSFG book! Congrats on finding all the components for your MM! We do have a few CA members and I'm sure they will chime in soon with more regional planting advice!

After you have been a member of the forum for 7 days, you should be able to post pictures. We would love to see your progress!

Thank goodness for Chopper's "What to plant this month", because otherwise I would have planted broccoli and cauliflower, which now I learned would be the wrong thing to plant at this time. Smile

What about Melons and Watermelons? I didn't see those included.. Is it too early for those?

Can't wait to post pictures of my fledgling garden! Smile

Hi Andreaaa'
glad you\'re here

I just came in from working in the garden to cool off a little.
Take a look in this So CA forum back to last year and at the beginng of each month Chopper has posted what to plant that month. That will help you with planning ahead.
I am not far from you and am currently harvesting red sails & romaine lettuce. The red sails is bolting so it is about done. I have garlic growing that was planted last fall. I have different varieties of lettuce, spinach and carrots seeded in the garden a couple of weeks ago.I also go the small bunchs of onions at Home Dept and those are all planted. The Walla Wallas did extremely well last year. Harvested in june and this week ran out.
I planted in the garden today corn, pole beans and delicata squash. It might be a little early but it's only seeds and I had the space. I would like to do a 2nd planting of corn following the onions & garlic in june or so.
I have seedlings started in the house on a heat mat then under small lights in my north facing garden window. Several types of tomatoes, bell peppers, celery, cucumbers, lettuce, chard & kale. The largest 4 I am hardening off to plant this week.I have 4 beds. The largest is 4 x8 and the other 3 are odd sizes, about 2- 21/2 x 6. This is my 2nd year.

Oh, and I forgot I have potatoes planted, Yukon Golds in 4 squares and in an old wheelbarrow.
