Returning to SFG

Post  ShannonH on 6/24/2012, 8:21 pm

Hi I'm Shannon, I live in the Jackson, Ms. area. I just moved here and don't even have a place yet but am so ready to return to gardening and especially SFG.
Backstory is that I have not had a garden in many many years for various reasons (excuses, call them what you will).
That said I should be getting a place in a couple of months and then I will be back to gardening, herbs first and then my winter veggies.

Welcome to the forum! How long has it been since you had your last SFG? If it was before 2006 make sure you have the updated book ALL NEW SQUARE FOOT GARDENING. Many modifications and updates to make it EASIER!!!

Welcome, Welcome. I was a number of years between gardens and found the ANSFG book. Inspired me to get back to it.

Welcome Shannon.

There was a gap of about 25 years before I got back to gardening, and I had had the 1981 edition of SFG on my bookshelf for about 15 years when my husband bought it for me for 50p from a garage sale. One of the best buys he ever made, even though after reading it I found the website and found that there was a later book that made life so much easier. Very Happy
