New To SFG

Post  oldpaths1611 on 4/7/2010, 1:02 pm

We are getting ready to start our first ever SFG. In fact, we're getting ready to start our first garden ever, period! We're up near Plymouth, NH. Any advice or suggestions from anyone else about SFG specific to our part of New England would be greatly appreciated. Also, I saw the book, "Ca$h from Square Foot Gardening." Has anyone actually turned this into a business? Have you been successful?

Hello oldpaths,
Welcome to SFG and the Forum. I'm nowhere near your part of the country but I do know we have some New Englanders here and I'm sure they'll respond to your post soon. Best of luck with your garden.

Welcome, Oldpaths! I have not read the Ca$h from SFG book, but I believe others here have. I'll try to find out who, and point you in their direction. It looks like you are in hardiness zone 5a - does that seem right?

What are you planning on growing? How many boxes? I'm looking forward to hearing how your season goes - I have dabbled in gardening for a few years, but last year was my first year SFGing, and I went straight to several boxes! I do follow most of Mel's advice, but not the start small part! But all in all, it was a really good year.

Thanks for those who replied. We're starting out with 18 boxes. We're a family of 6, so that's 3 boxes each. As far as what we're planting...pretty much everything!

You go! All experts say "start small", but I didn't and I have no regrets.

Send us photos and stories when you can, and never hesitate to ask questions. Also, as a newcomer, do not hesitate to share successes with us! Maybe it will be something we already know, and maybe not. Or there may be people lurking who will feel encouraged by a beginner experiencing success - which you will!
