I'm new to this!

Post  gardeningvirgin on 3/12/2010, 4:47 pm

I'm new not only to SFG, but also to gardening. My mom kept a garden in our backyard for 2 years when I was 6. That's a long time ago and I've not done it myself. I want to garden to save money while growing food that we know is safe to consume. I am married to and we have 3 young kids, 6,4 and 2. We're in Fishers, IN.

Do you have a neighbor or someone at church that keeps a garden? That is always helpful. So are books for beginners ....Like that all new Square Foot Gardening book.

Deborah ....have some good clean fun in the dirt!

Welcome to the easiest way to garden in all the whole world! And it is so easy all your kids can help and the 4 and 6 year old can have their own garden with the 2 year old helping Mom in her's. Yes it is that easy so get a copy of the, "ALL NEW Square Foot Gardening" book and have a wonderful garden this year.

God Bless, Ward.

Hi, I am looking forward to my first gardening experience come spring. I also have 3 young ones, and I am so excited for them (9, 7 and 4) to actually watch their food grow! I think it'll be a fun summer project for us all. My hubby isn't so excited about this....he keeps telling me it'll be "so much work".....Oh, I REALLY want to prove him wrong. I hope Mother Nature cooperates with us this yr so I can have a garden that flourishes!!!

I hope to post pictures soon and I hope to see more from everyone else as well.

Welcome! We were all new at some time. And many of us are new at this method, so please join in and ask questions and before long you will be giving advice! You won't save any $$ this year since it costs quite a bit to get started, but then the costs are minimal from here on out.

Kids will LOVE it!

Post  bullfrogbabe on 3/14/2010, 9:52 am

Your children will love this! They can do the digging, seed planting, watering, and weeding (if there is any) all by themselves once they know what to do. They may insist on doing all this themselves, leaving little work for you!

Welcome to the world of SFG. As has been said, there is some work involved but it's all in the set up. Once that is done - boxes made, Mel's Mix mixed - it's SOOOOOO much easier than traditional in-ground row gardening.
