Noob in Oceanside, Ca.

Hey everyone!!

I just wanted to say HI since I'm a new SFGer. It's kinda funny....my neighbor gave me the original SFG gardening book almost 2 years ago and it sat on a self unread. I don't remember what made me pick it up the other day, but it's a GREAT read and I've since bought the new version and am working my way through every page.

I've tried a few box gardens in the past, but I built them slightly too big and put them up against the house (and too close together). In short, I could really only access them from one side and that pretty much doomed them to overgrowth and getting ignored. Sad I now see the error of my ways and am looking forward to building properly-sized and located boxes. OUr growing weather here in Oceanside is almost year-round, and I'm getting into green-juice, so I'm REALLY looking forward to a non-stop crop of the greens I go through....cilantro, parsley, spinach, etc. Very Happy

Also, there is a SFG 3 day seminar coming up in San Diego in October. I happen to have that time off work and am wondering if anyone else on this forum has attended one of those?? A review would be great!!

Anyway.....I'm looking forward to participating here and growing my knowledge of gardening in general and SFG specifically!!!

Welcome to the forum! Sounds like you are hooked like the rest of us now and I am a bit jealous of your year round growing season! I have never been to one but there are quite a few square foot garden teachers here on the forum that I am sure could tell you about them!
