Howdy Folks! zone 9 FL

Post  backwoodsgirl123 on Sun Apr 29, 2012 2:26 am

I did SFG up in VA and moved back to FL last August. Didn't have the money to do MM this time, had free compost down at the dump and brought in truckloads and filled 6 beds, plus a couple of large tree pots (somewhere around 35 gallons or so).

Two of the beds are 4' X 12', two are 4' X 8' and two are 6' x 8'. I also have a 10' X 12' bed. The beds out front are inground. Covers almost 50'.

But I love SFG! Wouldn't go back to row gardening for anything in the world.

Trying to get used to gardening in FL. I never had success when I lived down here before because I kept trying to amend the sand. Now, I've got a huge jungle. Wish I had some photos to post. I've got somewhere around 100 tomato plants 48 of them are in SFG the rest are in sunk in beds out front.

I've got a ton of different kinds of pepper plants, lettuces, cabbages, collards, pototoes, squash, cukes, watermelon, cantelope, popcorn and sweet corn. Oh, and the usual radish, beets, turnips, onions, asparagus and garlic.

Everything does wonderful except for the beans and cukes. They are dying out on me and they just started producing. I think a cat got them.

And yes, I can my produce and I'm growing for my soon-to-be brother-in-law and sister-in-law because he has poor health and survived cancer and can't do it anymore and she's in poor health too. A lot older and fragile.

I water a LOT!

backwoodsgirl! I'm your neighbor in zone 8b. It's so nice that you're growing for your family as well. If we had our parents nearby, we'd probably do the same. Hopefully you can get pictures uploaded soon; I really want to see how another FL garden looks!

If we don't get some rain soon, it'll look like the Sahara Desert, LOL!
