I Think My Boxes are Out of Control

Post  AtlantaAnn on 5/19/2010, 7:15 pm

I hope these post. I'm as excited to share my works as I am to see all of yours. I've be SFGing for 6 years. I admit to not following the method to the T but I have great turn-out. My husband says it looks more like the square inch method @ times...but he is NOT complaining while he eats fresh collards, green-beans, tomato, okra, yellow & zuchinni squash..and most of all he loves running outback as opposed to the store when I need a cuke or bell-pepper for a fresh salad.

Post  SirTravers on 5/19/2010, 7:27 pm

I don't think McD's will mind me using their phrase, but I'm Lovin It! It gives me hope that my bare back garden will be a lush, green haven in a few years.

Thanx SirTravers....and haven is right. I was away for a few weeks and a couple good rains...and things blew up. I'm now having to prune & cage some things in order to see & allow sunshine on others. No matter the tide....it bears repeating.... "i'm loving it 2." Good luck on your piece of haven

Isn't there a video series called "SFGs Gone Wild"? I swear I saw it advertised on cable late one night. It might have been something else. I was half asleep having dosed off lusting over a seed catalog. Hmmm... :suspect:

...your garden looks great btw.

Gorgeous. How I WISH I had all that open sun. I have GOT to get some of the neighbor's crappy branches sawn off. They hang over my property, and then I have a huge oak, so, I get 6+ hours, but morning sun, and my stuff grows, but boy is it slow. Your plants look beautiful!!!

You did a great job! That looks like a nice spot to have a cup of coffee in the morn.

I especially love the Table Top SFG.
It looks like you used mulching plastic to keep anything from growing underneath them.

thanx 1chichi. yes @ mulching plastic/weed-paper. i usually just toss pots & such under the table-tops. i plan to tack a few pieces of lattice on the front & sides... just for appearance sake.

Get out !! I love it !! I have "a" chair in my garden that is tan !! I will get a red can of paint when I get the trellis stuff today. Im trying to sell SFG table tops to my family as well :-D even though mine on the ground right now. I will be working on them being TT someday. I love it and Boffer was the reason in the first place about TT. You made a little niche for yourself in that garden like that. Keep sharing the garden looks nice to sit in Smile

AtlantaAnn What a wonderful creative SFG! I can't think of any place
better to have a setting area than right next to your SFGs, a great
place to set back and relax and enjoy the beauty of the gardens!
