aloha from Oahu

Post  bubbleshell on 10/3/2011, 4:11 am

Aloha to all the SFG gardeners out there...after our move from the East Coast to the North Shore, my gardening brain seems to have stopped working and needs a reboot. After renting for several years, we are finally moving into our own home in Waialua area. Annndd...now I have room for a garden! I have a small yard that will be great for SFG. I got out the old book, then found you were online! I am excited to get started with my own spot again and have lotsa ideas that I hope will work. But Hawaii is very different from the vegetable gardening I grew up with. Hope to learn lots from your experiences.

See you all in the forums! Very Happy

I will defer to those who know first hand but think of it as a 12 month summer. From what I gather, spring vegetable will need some shadecloth and a little hope.

Good luck and I hope some Hawaiian members come out of the woodwork to clue you in some more.

Pineapples in sfg

Post  fh on 10/3/2011, 5:28 am

I have about 15 crowns in tiny pots and would like to plant them in the ground. I was dreaming last night how wonderful it would be to have a 4x8 sfg and have an entire plot just for pineapples. I read on-line that you only need to space the pineapple plants 1 foot apart, so sfg would be perfect.
