New SFG Gardener Saying Hello...

Post  mulebelle on 9/22/2012, 12:44 pm

I came across the square-foot gardening theory after I retired a few months ago and am starting with one bed that is about 4 X 8 for a fall garden here in northern California. I'm not sure what zone I'm in because different maps tell me different things but it is either Zone 9 or 14. I live in Mendocino County and no, I don't grow anything that is worth a lot of money!
lol!
However, because of that clandestine industry, I am able to find just about anything this old fashioned vegetable/flower gardener would like in the way of supplies locally.

My goal is to produce all the vegetables I eat organically and would like to use as many heirloom varieties as possible. This site is an exciting find for me!
