Hi Kareemtolba. Welcome from Atlanta, GA (SE USA). Glad you're here!

Have you read All New SFG, 2nd Edition? If not, I'd strongly recommend it before you go digging.... Mel made it easier for us as he went along...

I have a friend who worked on the new Children's & Women's Hospital. Is it open yet?

Looking forward to seeing your garden grow!

Hey AtlantaMarie, yup if it's the Medicare one; then it's up and running Smile

I did not read the book itself, I watched tons of videos and read a lot of pages. I will post a picture tomorrow to get some pointers.

Kareem,  I'm late welcoming you to the Forum.  glad you\'re here I spoke with someone from the Middle East, yesterday, and he said that the summers are absolutely hot, hot!  So, my thoughts are that your better growing season would be "fall-winter-spring" months.  I live in the Northern California Region (see Home Page) and the summer can get up to 110*F (43*C).  The Southwestern Desert Region also deals with hot summers up to 46*C.  You will find information on mulching and shading to get the plants through hot weather in topics from these Regions.  Again, welcome to the Forum!
