THANK YOU

Post  buttaflie143 on 4/16/2011, 10:27 am

I am writing this post to thank everyone on the forum who answered my questions, no matter how silly they may have seemed, for offering advice and suggestions, and for just being here. This year my vegetable gardening dream is being realized...my structure and layout is in my opinion perfect. It has been tweaked and refined and it could not have happened without you all.

I am the city girl who hates to get dirty or sweat. I hate bugs, I'm scared of snakes, and I have crazy allergies. But somewhere inside of me there has always been a desire to grow things...from "John" the plant my mom gave me when I went off to college to the BHG flower bed I planted in my yard the year we bought our home. Now with the help you gave me, I will be able to feed my family truly from the work of my own hands. So for all of this I say THANK YOU!!!!!

I wrote a similar thread with the same sentiment shortly after I joined the forum as well.

I am glad you found what you needed here. Looking forward to sharing in your gardening season with you!

Don't forget to stick around and tell us how it all turns out and help the newbies that will need your advice next year!

I wouldn't dream of leaving. I am probably going to share for life. Stay tuned for more pics, get ready for more questions, and hopefully one day I can pay it forward. Gotta love SFG!!!!! (I'm getting a T-shirt and bumper sticker!) I was planning on getting out in the garden today, but here in Raleigh, NC won't allow it. Just had one touch down about 5 min. away from our home. We haven't had tornado "warnings" since 1984.

Yeh, we're under a Tornado Watch until 9 PM.

Can't wait to see how everything goes during the season, and I hope you have fun with your SFG.

You are so sweet. I can't wait to hear how wonderful your food tastes. There is nothing compaired to home grown. Just hang in there. Alone we are just one, together we are mighty. I will need the help most when it is midsummer. So hot and buggy I hate to sweat as well. When I get hot I start acting like a Twisted Evil . I will need you and the rest of the gang most then. I hope I have helped some.

Shannon, grow some mint. (in a pot as it tends to be invasive) Learn how to make mojitos. They are the best remedy for sweatiness. A couple of those and you don't even remember you were sweating! Wink

That's awesome....lol.

Another thing to do, if you're really crazy, is to do what my grandmother used to do for mint. She made mint jelly! It sounds goofy, but a peanut butter and mint jelly sandwich is so darned good. I miss my Nana......haven't had that sandwich in going on 15 years now. Nothin' tastes like gramma makes.

I have a pot of spearmint already but cant mix liquer and diabetic meds Mad and it sounds so good. I'll have to stick to sweet (spelnda) tea. "It's the house wine of the south."

No, thank you for joining the forum. Having new members, especially ones that ask lots of great questions and post pictures, makes this place a lot more exciting.

How did you make it through the tornadoes? I heard that Raleigh actually took a direct hit. Hope you are alright...

Shannon have you tried growing Stevia? I am trying it this year. It can be used as a sweetener, in fact it is supposed to be very sweet. You can't use it in baking because sugar and sugar substitutes add a certain texture that is needed. However, for drinks, it is supposed to be wonderful. You might want to try it in your tea.
