Hey yall!

Good afternoon from stormy, rainy, Tulsa! 
I'm a beginning gardner who stumbled across SFG while searching for raised garden bed ideas on the internet.  I'll tell you what....I'm loving the concept
My mother had a garden in our backyard when I was a child, and I absolutely loved growing and harvesting veggies.  Over the years I would see people tending their home gardens and I would tell myself I was going to start a garden of my own some day.
 I had some success with container gardening last year, so I figured I would go bigger, but didnt want to do any tilling and such. That's when I stumbled upon SFG. I purchased a book in January and the rest is, well...soon to be history. It's only April.  Very Happy 

You guys have some awesome advice here.  Reading about your successes and failures has been quite a joy, and has given me some good laughs to boot.  Well, that's all for now.
*sn* I'm beginning to break the children down little by little (15 and Cool. They have stopped groaning and rolling their eyes when I try to drag them to backyard*  Wink

Good luck on your efforts!

Not having to till justifies a LOT of preliminary work and fuss, IMO, so that's definitely a big attraction of SFG for me.
