I have only one proper SFG 4' by 8' bed to show as this is my first year with the ANSFG method and I wanted to start out with a single bed to test the efficiency of the composts I selected and make sure I worked out any kinks I may have encountered gardening this way before going "big".

I have to say the one "proper" bed is looking good.

I made my Facebook garden album "public" so you should be able to see it. We jumped on the warm weather and redid the old railroad tie garden (22 years old) and created a new raised SFG this year. I LOVE it. It was a ton of work, but now that it's done it feels very good! I start each morning with some time in my garden. I'm excited for each new seedling, and this weekend I'm planting the tomatoes and cucumber that I started in the basement. The photo album will keep growing...just like my garden. Very Happy

Those are some great garden pictures.

I'm sorry, but I don't do Facebook so can't see those. Don't want to ever do Facebook or Twitter. Friends have caught viruses and had puter probs from some goings on with them before so I stay away from them entirely. Can you post any pics here?

Quiltbea - I posted some under 'garden plans' here so you can see the layout.

...though just viewing my photo album is safe on Facebook. It's clicking on "stories" or phantom ads that can get you in trouble.

Thank you! The coca cola cooler contains my jalapeno peppers and habanero peppers. The trap is to catch squirrels that get into the garden. I was having issues with them digging in my beds. The wife and baby are doing great, she is seven weeks old.

Here is a link about the planter.

Kudos to you! I am another non facebook or twitter person. I think it is way overhyped and overblown!

Hey georgiahomegardener. Thought I'd share the pics of my son's habenero with you.

after overwintering in the greenhouse. Btw. It bloomed and produced pea sized peppers between Jan and March. My son says it has leafed out and is blooming again.



last summer

That is awesome, I have heard you can grow peppers year round if you protect them from frost. I have never done it because I just replant every year. Nice! Very Happy
