Hi from Ohio

Post  broberts0518 on 2/5/2013, 5:21 pm

Hi everyone I'm Brian from ne Ohio. I just started as a SFGer. I wanted to start growing some of my own food for health and cost purposes. My parents and grandparents were traditional gardeners but I just couldn't get into the huge space and lots of extra work tilling and weeding. SFG seems like a good way to attain all of my gardening goals.

Hello Brian and welcome from Amanda, I am southeast of Columbus, Ohio. You've come to a good place to hang out, lots of information here. Hope you have the All New Square Foot Gardening book. The book alone will get you off to a great start. There is a lot of helpful people here, and you can look up topics in the white search box, above and to the left.
Welcome!

I actually have the e-book version on my smart phone so I have it all the time. I started reading up on raised bed gardening and stumbled onto SFG and mels book. I had the whole thing read in about 2 days( the first time) and use it almost daily in planning for the spring. Hopefully all my reading pays off with a nice crop.

I found sfg by accident too while reading up on raised bed gardening. Read the book fast during mid summer a few yrs back and began with a vibrant fall garden. Then I stumbled upon the forum.
The most important chapter for your success is making mel's mix. Keep us posted on your journey! We love pictures around here.

Hello Brian & welcome to SFG! We just completed our first year and had a great time. I grew up in Mentor and all my family still lives there. How long have you lived in Cortland?

Welcome to the forum. Lots of helpful folks here to answer questions. This method is such a fun way to begin and then each year brings new plans that are such fun. I look forward to spring each year with a new plan just so I can rotate my crops.
Enjoy the thrill of growing your own. And the flavors......mmmmm good.
