Hi from the Atlanta Georgia area!

Post  suzyt on 3/4/2010, 11:23 am

Anyone one here from around my part of the country? I gardened in containers last year... and this year am making the leap to SFG. It would be nice to find someone who is a SFG close by.

Hello Suzy!

I am in NW GA! I planted a traditional garden last year which did ok-ish. My sister, who also lives in NW GA, planted her first SFG using less space and had twice the harvest and half the work I did. This year I am planting my first SFG! I am so excited and look forward to hearing about your progress and success!

I live in NE Georgia. Lawrenceville to be more specific.

This is my first year attempting a SFG. I am building my boxes now.

Welcome to the forum. I am a few hours North and West of you just outside of Nashville. Be sure and check out the Middle South Region section to see what the happenings are for your area and what others in similar climates are up to.

Seems like there is a decent crowd in the Central and Northern Georgia area. I encourage all of you to get some topics going about what you have had success with in your gardens and what problems (pest, diseases) your area is often affected with over in the Regional Forum.

Hi Suzy. I'm in NE Alabama, about 2 hrs from Atl. This is my first year to SQF. Just got my order from SQF the other day so hope to get it all going Monday. Good luck.

Howdy, neighbors, from Decatur, GA! This is my first year SFG, and I am loving it. I have to go out and look at all my seedlings two or three times a day to see if they've grown! Hey, the beans grew an inch yesterday!
