Diving in...

Post  amy17green on 4/1/2011, 10:45 am

I'm excited to finally have some land to garden! Our yard isn't big, so I started looking for ways to have a garden in a small space. I've started reading the book and can't wait to get my boxes started. The kids have started some seeds, but we have many more weeks of cool weather before we can get them planted. Going to do some research on keeping squirrels and kids out!

to the forum and SFG!!! You will love the book!!! We love pictures so share when you can, and ask what you need, cuz we love to help.

Best way to keep kids "out" is to encourage them to get involved. Try here for ideas.

Amy

Great that you are using the ALL NEW SQUARE FOOT GARDENING book. It is so full of simple, easy to understand information and instructions.

SFG is great for small areas.

The kids can be involved in planting, watering and nurturing. But, little ones sometimes want to harvest before things are ready. Hope you enjoy gardening with the kids.

Again, Welcome. Please keep us updated on your progress.

Welcome to the forum.
We're all 'itchin' to get started with our gardens this year.

You'll find many helpful people here who can answer your questions and provide pictures that help even more.

We love pictures. Be sure to have your camera with you when you garden.

The kids love to see something growing quickly. I suggest you give them each a row of radishes to start. Maybe alongside a cabbage, cauliflower or broccoli plant. They will be harvested before the other crop needs the space. Nothing grows quicker and they'll love pulling those red fruits out of the ground knowing they grew them all themselves.

Good luck and enjoy the experience.
