Another Newbie

Post  PurpleRose on 8/22/2012, 6:53 pm

Greetings from the Eastern Shore of Virginia! I didn't think I was confused about where I was, but after looking at the regions I guess I am. Based on my zip code, I'm in zone 7B. Can someone help with my region assignment? Thanks! What a Face

Hey Purple Rose Welcome to the SFG Forum! Click this link for more info. Let me know if you still need help.

Do you have a garden now? Have you read the All New Square Foot Gardening book?

Thanks for the reply. I bought my sfg book in 1988 and had a small 5 X 8 garden then. I retired in 2007 and it's taken me this long to adjust and get going with my present 22 X 22 garden. I love it!!

Mel's new book for SFG - ALL NEW SQUARE FOOT GARDENING - came out in 2006. There are improvements, especially the invention of Mel's Mix, that make it MUCH easier than all the soil ammending! If you don't have it, that is the place to start.
