Redhue, let me be the first on here to glad you\'re here you!!

I'm a little up the road in Frederick county Maryland. You'll find many recourses on this forum. Feel free to ask any questions.

I'm moderately new here, but there are many garden buffs who can help you with just about anything.

We love pictures Smile

Hi Stephanie:

Welcome, welcome! I'm your neighbor just up the road.



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 don't remember any members specifically from DC. I lived there for years. Now on the opposite coast and loving the cool weather and low humidity. (except we don't even have enough heat to grow decent tomatoes or peppers, but I don't let that stop me from trying)

Have you finished reading the book ALL NEW SQUARE FOOT GARDENING? If not, buy a copy or borrow it from your library. It makes SFG so simple and it just makes sense.

Please keep us updated on your progress and share pictures, we I love you pictures.

Thank you Weatherkid, Kim, and Furbalsmom! I am so excited! I will post lots of pics, too.

Kim, are you the Kim Roman that did a SFG segment for a Baltimore news channel? Tonight I watched the post on SFG's Facebook page. Smile
