Post  bsm1592 on 4/13/2012, 11:05 am

This is my second year as a SFG. Last year I used 1 raised bed. This year I will be doing a total of 4. One from last year and three new ones this year. Very Happy

No corn?

I envy your ability to grow okra, which I use in curries and chicken (or shrimp) gumbo soup.

I look forward to seeing photos of your crops.

Welcome

Glad to see the expansion. We knew you could not just have 1 box. LOL I started with 3 boxes a few years ago and now have 6 - 4 x 4 and a few smaller boxes. I am always trying something new. This year it's celery.

Happy Gardening:D

I'm new to SFG, but I've known about it (and planned on using the method someday) for 13 years.
