Hello From WV

Post  vee on 5/15/2012, 5:40 pm

I hope I am doing this right. I have been gardening in one way or another all my life. I recently had a back problem which doesn't let me bend as well. I had been considering scaling back to a more workable area for my age and decided now was the time. Fortuntely my husband retired and agreed to make a small square foot garden with legs that I could experiment with. I am so excited to have this forum to ask questions and have already been reading about others' gardens.

Welcome to the forum...

so much info on here and you can use their search box to the left to search any topic. also, go to the square foot forum homepage and scroll near the bottom where it mentions Regional and find your zone. More info there to browse on planting in your specific area.

Looking forward to hearing about your progress thru the growing season.

Hi Vee!

I suggest that you look for posts showing different things boffer has made. In fact, when you're on the SFG home page, mouse over the scalloped side bar on the left and you'll find a link to a great thread where boffer goes over several designs for SFG's raised up on legs. That thread doesn't cover all options, but it will give you a great starting place and some very helpful information about supporting it underneath, etc.
