I finally joined your forum, my first, because I have lots of questions about SFG how-to and supplies. Several local people took the sfg workshop course, given last month and there is great enthusiasm for the approach. I've already started a small 2 by 2 and the bush beans are appearing.

By way of introduction, I'm originally from the Northeast (Boston area) but have spent a good chunk of time in California and overseas (12 years in Africa and years also in the S. Pacific). After I retired, I decided to return to Hawaii which is the best place I've ever lived.
Looking forward to our back and forth,


Joan Larcom

Wow - Boston to Hawaii in one lifetime!

I know that there are some Hawaiians here.

We do all help each other, but some things are region-specific, like when to plant what obviously.

Just do me one favor - when you post photos of your garden, will you make sure not to include any background? which is the emoticon I use for "jealous but friendly!!!!"

Welcome! I am another jealous of your location. I however would love to see pictures with all sorts of background views. Hawaii being on my list of must sees in this lifetime.

You are so fortunate to be able to travel to so many exciting places and then retire to Hawaii - good for you!

My son, daughter-inlaw, grandson (1yr old), husband & I spent 10 days on Maui last year and loved it. It was my husband & I first time there & also my grandson. The island is absolutely beautiful.


Happy Gardening....
