My name is Ed and live in Winchester, VA, been a SFG'er for about 3 years now and can't say enough good things about my experiences.  Excellent vegetables and super productivity given the right amount of sun.  I plan on adding 2 more sections this year with the central part being 12" high.  I am hoping to get more root veggies in this year and expand my tomato repertoire.

Welcome aboard Ed from Ottawa Canada. SFG rookies like me can always use good advice from those more experienced like yourself. This forum is great and has really helped me not just with SFG but many other things including composting, growing microgreens, starting seeds indoors, canning, dehydrating, etc.  There is just no end to the depth of the knowledge base here.

Hi, Ed! Welcome to the SFG Forum from Ohio! I have just come off my 2nd year SFGing, the first couple being very very long ago with the original method...and I agree with you about it's relative attributes!

Glad you found us! I plan to add some SF too, with my first actual built box. I started with 4 re-purposes window boxes, which were great actually, and free (lol). And composting has been interesting, I love it now and can't wait to use some of my own!

Share often, and we love pictures!
