Newbie here in WSestern WA

Post  RebeccaAnn on 4/3/2013, 5:44 pm

Hello from West Puget Sound! I am just beginning -again- with square foot gardening. I started out with it years ago, but my then-spouse took it over and turned it into not-a-SFG. Turned out to be 20' by 70' of what-the-heck-do-I-do-now. Smile Anyhow, I guess I fill the category of newbie once again. I have always been interested in self-sustainability, but having recently lost my job helps a lot in the area of motivation. I have made attempts at veggie gardening here in the NW, and have always become disappointed at my abilities foremost, followed by the climate, etc. I hope that using SWF will make it manageable while producing much more beneficially than a standard garden does. I am just about to build my containers, grid them out and fill them. We'll see what happens!

We have an awesome zone!

The more I talk to, and read from others around our country I learn that we have fantastic conditions for great gardens. I'm new to vegetables, but I figure if Eliot Coleman can do it (not exactly SFG) in Maine in the winter, then we can surely do it here in the summer!

We have fertile soil and plenty of water. No clay, no drought, most of us don't have 6 feet of snow. I think we can do this thing!

Hello and welcome to the forum! I admire your motivation to become more self-sustained in light of your recent job loss. Good for you. I happen to be in Seattle right now on a little trip with the kiddos. (Nap time for the youngest so we're hanging out in the hotel right now).

We have the best weather for cool season crops and many of them can be grown year round here. A lot of summer crops need a longer season than we can count on. But you never know! Always worth trying. Keep us posted on how you do with your new gardens and ask whatever questions you need - there are plenty of friendly folks on here that can usually help.
