Hello from SW Idaho

Post  chuck m on 4/6/2011, 10:57 pm

Chuck m here. Re starting my square foot gardening. Used to do some 20+ years ago. I am retiring in 26 days, but who's counting. I don't have much area, but I will make the most of it. I just need to sit down and plan what to grow.
Everyone enjoy your gardens and don't make work out of if. Gardens are a place to unwind and relax.

Wow! 26 days... I bet you could break that down to hours, minutes, and seconds if needed! Great advice about gardening to unwind!

Hiya Chuck, welcome to the forum. There's some folks in eastern WA (similar climate) that will be glad to see you here. SFG 20+ years ago? That was in the last century! Things have changed...a lot! Get the ALL NEW SFG book to learn how easy gardening has become, and still possible in a small space.

Any chance you're near Caldwell? I have a funny story about that town. Congrats on retiring; you'll soon be a one digit midget!

Boffer, Next door, nampa. I used to watch square foot gardening on TV. It sure seems that tactics have changed.

They sure have. Are you going to be able to start a box for spring? Or would it be more practical to start in late summer for a fall/winter harvest?

Your advice is good: chill...relax...enjoy. You won't starve to death if a plant dies! lol!
