Howdy howdy from Little Elm, TX

Post  AAmick on 2/23/2011, 7:38 pm

Hi gang! We're new to the SFG concept, and I find it fascinating. I look forward to getting started soon as I just picked up the book and priced out materials today.

I'm wanting to jump in but at the same time thinking we may have another freeze or two yet to come to North Texas... But we'll see. Looks like there are quite a few folks in the area so I look forward to sharing ideas/thoughts/veggies! Very Happy

Howdy Texans from the great white Maine.

This is a great forum for beginners and experienced alike. We share successes and failures and get good advice from one another.

We even swap seeds and recipes.

I think you'll find this a helpful place. Just jump right in with SFG. I began in spring 2009 and have never looked back. I love it.

If I can do it at 67 with aching back and leg probls, anyone can handle an SFG.

Good luck with your first SFG this year.

glad you\'re here Adam, and I am afraid you are right, we may just get more freezing weather and more snow yet this season. But, that's TX weather for you, never dull!

Having a little time before you are ready to plant just gives you the opportunity to get your SFG beds made and filled. You will find once that is done, you just have to seed, water, nurture and enjoy those fresh veggies.

Please feel free to ask questions, we have so many members that are willing to help out.
We I love you pictures and hope you will share with us.

Again, Welcome

I'm a newbie too! Putting my bed (starting with one 4' x 6') together today. I'll try to post pics later. I'm really excited to give this a shot - saw $1 cucumbers and $4 lb. tomatoes at HEB yesterday!

Welcome Wendy, from the great white north in Maine. We got 8" more snow yesterday so we won't see our gardens for weeks yet.

Good luck with the gardening. I began new at SFG in spring 2009 and never looked back. I love it. Great food.

This forum is the place to come to find out what's happening among others like ourselves. We all share success, failure, ideas and lots of pictures.

Welcome,
quiltbea
