Hello from Northern Ontario Eh!

Post  21Actual on 1/11/2018, 9:58 pm

Cant say for sure how I got the sudden interest to start a veggie garden, but I quickly found this forum and the SFG method.  I haven't stopped reading and researching for the better part of a week.

What a great resource this board is, and everyone seems to be ready willing and able to help. 

Greetings from the North!

Welcome, 21Actual!  You will be so happily surprised by this wonderful method of gardening!  Try to get your hands on a copy of All New Square Foot Gardening, libraries have them.  It is a great resource especially getting started!

Lots of great resources, experts, failures to avoid, successes to share!  This site is a wealth of great info!

Purchased the book through Amazon a few days ago and have already read it front to back. 

I got myself a plan.  Will be starting a thread shortly to document my plans and progress come spring.

Great thanks. We drove through that area a couple of years ago on our way to Sault Ste Marie (Ontario) and then the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.

Looks like you are doing some nice work on your SFG.

Actual, Welcome to the Forum from mid California! glad you\'re here

So glad you have read the book before starting. If you have any questions or need clarification, we are here. And, we love photos.

Adding "Hispanola" or "west of Sudbury" will help folks understand your climate and gardening conditions. Thanks

My computer is blocking photos/charts on your other post, My First Attempt. And, in general, is not liking me to even open the thread. ??

Very strange.  I can see the photos no issue.  I believe others could as well.  They are hosted on cubeupload.com   

I tried to attach multiple pictures through the forum but was having issues so i uploaded them to cubeload and linked them.
