Here we go!

Post  Earthmama2010 on 4/3/2011, 4:56 pm

This is the first time in over 20 years that I will be starting a garden. I have wanted to be more self-sufficient, so planting a garden is the best way to start. I am starting small this year to get the hang of it an will probably expand next year. Happy growing!

Its been a while since you gardened, but with the ALL NEW SQUARE FOOT GARDENING book, you will find it is easy to have a productive garden with NO WEEDS (that is what I love the most).

Hope you have had a chance to read the book, if not, look for a copy or see if you can borrow one from your local library. It is definately worth the read.

It is a good idea to start small. That way, you can get the basics down and not get overwhelmed before you really get going.

Enjoy and keep us updated on your progress. We love pictures too!

Good for you!! You have made, imo, the best choice ever in following the SFG system. Welcome aboard; it's great to have another from the Midwest!

Any question you have should be asked. We are here to help and love it. Pictures are worth way more than 1000 words, too. I know I can't wait to see what you have in store for your garden.

Feel free to look around the forum, too. There is a regional subforum I know you will like, and others close by, too. There are recipies, topic specific places like Composting, and even a place to just let the hair down and be a clown.....Outside the Box.

Get comfortable, and I hope to see you become an active participant here. Welcome again!
