new to GA and to SFG!

Post  Moonwaxing on 4/10/2011, 5:49 pm

Hello from Senoia, GA (which is just south of Atlanta). I'm new to gardening in zone 7 and new to SFG. Until just over a year ago, I lived in zone 4 Minneapolis, MN. Now I'm learning about the extended vegetable growing season of The South!

Yesterday, I did my first attempt at Mel's Mix. I found that Vermiculite is hard to find and expensive. But I'm looking forward to planting!

I am also blogging for the first time. The blog is my gardening journal as well as communication to my mom (who is in MN) and to my homeschool co-op, which is gardening with me. We have two community gardens set up in our co-op. I think the other garden is doing row gardening. It'll be interesting to see how the gardens compare.

Thank you so much for this forum and all the wonderful information. I am in love with the All New Square Foot Gardening book! My favorite quote is this:

"You know the saying, 'Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.' The world hunger problem can never be solved until we help people help themselves, step-by-step, square-by-square. Then, maybe the saying will be, 'Show a family how to Square Meter Garden, and they will feed themselves forever.' ” ~Mel Bartholomew

Moonwaxing Cheryl

Glad to have you here.

I am looking forward to hearing the results comparing the harvests from row gardening and SFG. One thing I know, SFG is MUCH easier. There are start up costs, but once your Mel's Mix is completed, you just add blended compost every time you harvest a plant, then replant and go on to your next square. No more mixing Mel's Mix
(unless of course you add more garden beds and SFG is certainly addicting )

Again, Welcome and please keep us updated on your progress. By the way, we I love you pictures.
