Good question!  you are in a cusp situation, depending upon your exact microclimate!  I am sure some locals will chime in here....

What are you interested in growing?  The moderators can move anything that is in the wrong spot....

Love to hear about your plans!  Ever SFG before?  What do you like to eat?

Welcome from Ohio!glad you\'re here

Hi Ksweet, Welcome to the Forum from California. Our temps are similar, though you get more rain. There are other SFG in your area so you will have company. Don't worry about the Region at this point. We are all here to welcome you.

Welcome to the Forum; from about 5 hours south San Antonio, Tx.  I Think you will find the zones don't mean as much as the micro climate you have, like I live in zone 8b but with high fences and no shade I garden in zone 10. Hope You have fun gardening There are good people on the Forum and some right in Your area.

Thank you so much everyone!
I am very excited to be a part of the Square Foot Gardening community and spreading the knowledge.

I first learned how to garden from my grandmother. I used to visit her at my grandparents farm and stay with her for a couple of weeks a year. I think my memories are mostly around how much better the food tasted.

I recently moved back to Texas after living in Colorado for several years. My re-kindling of gardening started a few years ago while still in Colorado. I had several raised beds that I used for growing food. But, we used the "soil and dirt" that was in the ground and amended the top mostly with compost. I had success with most things. But, the growing season was short and I never really got into a full routine with starting seedlings early and using a grow light.

We moved back to Texas last May and purchased our house back in September. I am so excited to have gone from a zone 4 to a zone 8a! I was not able to have the opportunity to get a routine going this year as we have been spending a lot of time getting situated into our house. We have a wonderful pie shaped yard on about 1/3 of an acre. The most open part is cornered right in the southwest corner. I have big goals and big plans for this yard! I wish I could snap my fingers and make it exactly how I imagine it.
Although I have experience with gardening, this is the first time I am truly doing square foot gardening. Right now, we have one complete 4x4 built, with plans to build a 3x8 by July. Then, over the winter we will be building a total of 5 more. I am in the process of watching the sun and how many hours a day there is direct light in some of the areas in our yard. I want to take advantage of as much yard as I can. I have everything ready to start a complete annual cycle of growing.
Professionally, I have a MS in Holistic Nutrtion (finishing up my thesis). I work as the Development and Outreach Coordinator for a national nutrition organization. Personally, I have a dream and a goal to teach in my local community and surround areas about how to make the most use of space and to get families and children back into growing food. I truly believe it is very important to clear some myths about soil and plant science as well as teaching that roots do not need 18 inches of growing room. Fresh produce has become very expensive. Even local farmer's markets are not inexpensive. If people could taste the difference in a vegetable grown at home vs the taste of commercially grown food, I think they would be hooked! And a lot healthier!

KSweet, Welcome to the Forum from central California! glad you\'re here You should be able to garden year around with maybe some freeze protection and some sun shade.

There's no doubt that veggies from the garden are tastier and healthier. When you get your garden going, you may want to consider taking the SFG Foundation class to be a Certified Inspector.

Thanks sanderson! I actually started the Certified Instructor program a couple of weeks ago. I just have to finish my study guide quiz. I am looking forward to learning more.
