Hi back to you in Arcadia

Post  paulpaluszak on 8/27/2011, 7:04 pm

I lived in Cape Coral for 20 years and never garden there due to the heat. I did have a mango tree and several papayas and did pineapples but anytime I tried a real garden it was a failure.

Now in Lawrenceville GA I get all 4 season and in my 2nd year of gardening and started with SGF and am having more successes than failures.

mhjr5500, So glad to have a new member from my region. Have you read Mel's new SFG book? I know you will find it so much easier than the old way. If you are going to have a fall garden what do you plan on growing? We love pics too so if you can please post some.
