Hello from Central Illinois

Post  JDD55 on 3/20/2010, 10:19 am

Hi all,

After doing the "traditional" gardening for so long, I finally decided to dust off my old copy of the SFG book, (The older version). I have since ordered the newer version and am awaiting it's arrival. This year will be my fist attempt at SFG, but I and my wife are really excited about the possibilities.

Speaking of which, I should done this first I suppose, but I have my lovely wife and 3 children (1 boy and 2 girls). We live in Central Illinois in a small town called Eureka, ( NO! not the one on Sci-fY). Now for those that do not know of that town we are about 30 miles from Peoria.

We were going to be starting out with 5 (4x4) boxes, but have since decided to at least double that to 10, plus maybe a few smaller boxes for herbs etc. I have enjoyed all of the tips and ideas that I have picked up from this forum.

PHEW!!!! I guess I'd better quit for now! I didn't realize how long winded I was getting. Well, see you all on here later and Happy Gardening!

Long winded is fine. You will have a blast reading the book and you will learn a lot from it. So in the mena time if you have any questions pleas ask.

God Bless, Ward.
