you sit in your chair in the garden, watching over your baby plants AND have a laptop with you so you can read the forums at the same time.

My husband knows he wont have to go to a jewelry store, or clothing store for my anniversary or birthday. He won't be embarassed asking a sales lady for the right size. All my gifts will come from a garden center somewhere out there! Where men can still shop like real men!!

If you fall asleep thinking about your SFG, dream about your SFG and wake up thinking about your SFG.

go running out into the middle of a torrential downpour with 1/2" hail (with an umbrella...I'm crazy, but I'm not STUPID!) to find the torn fleece you put in the garbage because you get teary thinking that all your little plants could be smashed to a pulp by the hail.

(Mission accomplished...shoes full of water and pants dripping across the kitchen...but the plants are safe)

I was in Wally World today....looking at the Hobby Farm Magazine and saw what looked like a SFG and almost yelled out "SFG". Now for sure I know I am hooked on SFG.

. . .start making a list of all your gardening friends and see if they'd be interested in splitting a seed order - consisting of ONE seed packet each of 75+ different varieties - it'll be a win-win for everyone! We all get to grow a wide variety of produce/fruits w/o much cash outlay. . .and no worries about seed storage. Smile

Posting this one for my dad

You might be a SFGer if:

You tell your wife your going out to work in the garden…

But instead you go to the SFG TT, just to hang out and have
a good time with your SFG buddies, cause you don’t really have any work to do in your SFG.

Ahhhh!! So good to see folks having a good time in the garden :-D

That TT is growing so nicely as well, I can see your Dad in my mind mixing MM in the box from the before pics. All of you have done a nice job, a true family team effort, I love team work.

Kids fighting to eat more veggies? That's gotta be from an SFG instead of wally's world.

You might be an SFG'er if for years you wanted flowers, but didn't have time for them because of trying to keep your traditional garden happy. Now with SFG.... I have time for flowers!!! Woo-Hoo!!

you kill time wandering among your table tops looking for weeds to pull, dressed in a suit and tie, while waiting on your wife to finish dressing.

... If you spend most of your free time inside looking out the kitchen window to look at the garden.

... If you've seriously considered taking out said window and putting in a glass door instead for quicker access to the garden. Hey it can't be that hard can it?
