As Universe might have it, I found this wonderful Forum today! WOW!

I absolutely LOVE SFGardening! I found out about it while I was at university and put it in my "real-life to-do list"...little did I know I'd be doing it in Italy...lol

Been doing SFG for about 27 years now.... usually with great success, I might add.

But, I'll never stop learning! So I'm sure I'll find lots of new nifty ideas here!

Glad to be among you all!

Its nice to see someone from lovely Italy. My in-laws came from there and I just love anything in Italy, the land, the lakes, the food, the people. Welcome.

Thank-you so much for the welcome, so very nice!

I see in your signature other terrain for me to explore on rainy days... my grandma used to quilt continously!

@MorningSong......I need something to do year round to keep me busy and useful, so when I've put gardening behind me in the late fall and winter, I take out the quilting projects and stay busy, busy, busy.

Welcome to the forum. It is fascinating that you have been doing SFG for so long, I am sure you can provide us with advice. For example, what varieties do you like to plant? This year I am planting Costata Romanesco squash from Rome and Barbarella eggplant from Sicily. We now have available to us here in the US seed from many Italian heirloom varieties. What are your favorites?

Oh my, where do I begin....hahaha

I always have my "Tromba d' Albegna" winter squash on the vertical frames...last year with only 3 plants, I harvested 14 of those big boys. They're great winter storers.

As for eggplant, I don't always plant that, but if I do, it's "Rotonda Mauve".

Gotta have Genovese Basil, that's a must.

Right now, I've got Romanesc and St. Anna Lettuce and Catalogna coming up. (we've had a slow-coming spring...too cold for a lot of vegies, yet)

Swiss chard from last year is still going strong, but I will be getting a new crop going very soon.

My "Calabrese" Broccoli from last year are still producing this spring.... just marvelous!

There's so much to tell...I've tried so many things... all things verticle, all things big and small.....

Agree on the basil, can never have enough. The "Tromba d' Albenga" is a brilliant suggestion. A vining zucchini that can be trained up a trellis and the inevitable "baseball bats" that escape detection can be allowed to mature and used as a "Butternut" type squash for winter storage. Baker Heirloom Seeds has the Zucchino Rampicante (Zucca D'Albenga) seeds but they are sold out for the year. Maybe next year. Thanks!
