Hello from NW Iowa

Post  dmladdusaw on 4/9/2017, 7:42 pm

While I am not new to gardening, this will be my first year for SFG.  I have not had a garden for 10+ years because I do not have the space.  I was so excited to hear about this at our Garden show a few weeks ago and have been planning ever since.  My tomatoes are in the house sprouting as I type this.  I am going to build my beds next weekend.  I am having difficulty locating compost.  We have a Lowes and a Home Depot here, but neither of them carries much for compost.  Any ideas for locating some would be greatly appreciated!
