Hi all! I'm very excited to join this community. I remember helping my dad garden as a kid-mostly picking beans! First garden as an adult, learning a lot, and amazed by how quickly everything grows!

glad you\'re here Kellerbee
I also remember "helping" my dad when I was a little kid. Such as planting a potato in a hole my dad dug for me and crediting myself with growing the potatoes for Sunday lunch. I was a was about four years old at the time but it left its impression on my later in life.
Are you a complete beginner? You have come to the right place to learn.  Very Happy

Yes, I'm using Mel's SFG. I have a small 2 x 4 bed, which I started kind of late. Grew squash, cucumbers, tomatoes from seed indoors and transplanted end of June. Added a few carrots, lettuce, and onions. 
I've had to put up fencing due to naughty bunnies and tried self pollinating due to lack of bees, but the good news is I picked my first beautiful zucchini yesterday!
