Pennsylvania Hellos!

Post  slewi on 12/7/2010, 1:48 pm

Hi folks! Just joined the forum, looking forward to reading all the posts and learning all I can before the season gets here.

I have had SFG's with varying success in the past, and this past year I did not have a garden at all. We just bought our house in April, and the summer was busy with lots of little chores, and gardening wasn't on my list of things to do. But I did realize how much I missed it, and cant wait to get going.

I bought the new edition of the SFG book and was amazed at all the new info, which I am still digesting. I'm all set to get planning it out and gathering my supplies. I'll start a thread with my preparations to keep you all updated. Looking forward to reading your comments.

Thanks for reading!

hi!!! so glad you found the sfg forums! i used to live in pa and actually still have many family members living there.

enjoy reading your seed catalogs, dreaming of spring while drinking your white birch beer soda.. . yum.

the new book makes gardening even easier! recruit teens (either yours or neighborhood) to help mix up the soil to make it even faster for your boxes to happen in the spring.

look forward to hearing about your dreams and successes with gardens!

i always enjoy learning from experienced gardeners - no matter the previous methods.

Welcome slewi from your "neighbor" in Maryland.



I have seen women looking at jewelry ads with a misty eye and one hand resting on the heart, and I only know what they're feeling because that's how I read the seed catalogs in January - Barbara Kingsolver - Animal, Vegetable, Miracle

I used to live in PA - Main Line - very pretty. It used to have the rare treat of four 3 month long seasons. I am sure you will love it here.

Welcome to the forum, Slewi. I also have Mel's original book, but I'm glad I received the new one as a gift. It does have a lot of updated material.

I look forward to seeing your prep thread.

glad you\'re here
