Back to SFG after many years abscence. Started SFG back in the 80's w/ just one square preped true to the gospel. Worked great and in preperation for year 2 sold the house (good-by SFG). Traveled for years and have now settled again - second year on the garden (4 tomatoes, 4 peppers and a cucumber last year) when I decided to double the size. Not a true SFG - 3 ft by 18 ft - haven't got the soil ingredients right yet but a start. This year 10 toms, 10 peppers 1 cuc and misc lettuce, beets, carots, spinach, etc. Don't ask me what the wife and I will do w/ all the produce but ....

To the newbies out there - remember it's the journey that is the prize, enjoy it day by day and if you get a nice salad to go w/ the smoked pork sandwich thats just desert!Old timer here 3170584802

I also had an SFG garden back in the early mid 80s. I also moved away from that for a while and am sorta circulating back into it. SOme how 3 feet is easier to reach over and deal with than 4 feet now...... Could not possibly be the change of 25 years.....

San Deigo area, huh? Where tomatoes can be perennials Old timer here 53366

Yah, I'd be one of the older ones, 71 and counting.



Tomatoes a long way off here in the Southern Illinois area. Frost night before last but the garden survived.

I had heard of the new book and looked at it when I reordered my old SFG (I give them away to aspiring gardeners with advice to take with a grain of common sense for circumstance. Mel likes to be emphatic). I intend to take a closer look again when it gets checked into the library ..... (I think I know where it is, as I was driving through town I peek at back yards and I saw some brand new raised beds in one Very Happy ) I also need to spend more time with Eliot Coleman's books, they are so good for my zone.

Missed-em.....Welcome from another oldie but goody who just turned 70 herself.

@turan....Also check out Barbara Damrosch's book, "The Garden Primer." Its great for northeastern gardens like ours. She's Eliot's wife and together they made the garden TV series "Gardening Naturally" of which I have many shows on VHS tapes, thank goodness. I wish they were of DVDs.
