Hello from Ontario, Canada

I am new to these forums, but not new to gardening.
I look forward to meeting some of you and learning some new techniques.

Greetings and to the SFG forum! Have you had a chance to read the All New Square Foot Gardening book? Not a replacement for the book but there is a bunch if good reading on the main page, left side! Enjoy!


40 years a gardener and going strong with SFG.

There are certain pursuits which, if not wholly poetic and true, do at least suggest a nobler and finer relation to nature than we know. The keeping of bees, for instance. ~ Henry David Thoreau


Outlander is outstanding!

I have seen women looking at jewelry ads with a misty eye and one hand resting on the heart, and I only know what they're feeling because that's how I read the seed catalogs in January - Barbara Kingsolver - Animal, Vegetable, Miracle

Definitely grab the book. And, this is the perfect place to ask questions you may want more explanation to. Also, stop by your regional forum and say hi in there, too.

Welcome aboard. Hope to see more of you.

As already mentioned, the first thing to do is get a copy of ALL NEW SQUARE FOOT GARDENING, and make sure you have the 2006, or later, edition. This book gives you the basics of a method that is so much easier to do. If you don't have your own copy, check your local library and perhaps they will have one you can use.

This group is great about sharing ideas and discussing options.

This time of year you may be like many of us, just planning your garden and studying seed catalogs then dreaming of the time you can start planting.

Again, Welcome and please keep us updated on your progress.
