Hello from Northern Illinois!

Post  momofswiss on 2/7/2013, 4:29 pm

Hello from a western suburb of Chicago! Can't wait to get started with this. I've done a veggie garden before with regular soil and hated the weeds. Mel's mix will be interesting. I'm collecting pallets to make a compost pile, picking up a rain barrel and I've got my seeds already. Next in line is the wood for my garden.

I've got lots of rabbits and occasional deer in my yard so I'm trying to find the easiest/cheapest way to keep them away.

Looking forward to this!

Welcome to the Forum. Lots of help here when you need it. Just ask. And pictures always help. The lack of weeds alone is a great reason to go SFG.
