first SFG!

Post  newgloves on 7/24/2010, 1:31 am

Well, growing up my parents had a huge garden and I've had two gardens in the past that produced wonderful tomatoes and cucumbers and that's about it. My squash/zuchinni, beans and lettuce has always been a disappointment. But, my sister - who once planted 24 tomato plants since she thought a 6 pack was all one plant - started SFG last year and it was a raving success for her so I just started mine last week. Yes, I'm bummed that it's so late in the season but here I am and excited to be doing it.

I've got a long growing season here (first frost is mid Nov) so my beans, cucumbers, swiss chard, beets, summer spinach and carrots are already popping out of the ground. I'm still waiting on my summer lettuce varities which are making me impatient. I've also planted tomato plants, peppers and squash from plant. Who knows how everything will do but I'm excited to be here and I appreciate all the knowledge and advice that you share! Hope to be growing soon. I'm also pregnant so DH jokes that I'm just growing all sorts of things!

Happy SFG!

Good luck. I lost all interest in my garden when I was pregnant! It made me morning sick to even think about lettuce and such. I let all sorts of lovely stuff dry out or go to seed.
