Hi, I have done some small container gardening but nothing on this scale. My husband built me 3 sfg's. Each is 4x4. I have planted cucumbers, tomatoes, lettuce, kale, jalapenos, radishes, snow peas, chives, basil, onion, and melon. I'm so excited. My home was flooded by hurricane Harvey and this is the first project I have taken on since the hurricane that has not involve recovery. It's therapeutic to do this. Oh, and I love making salsa, so I am hoping this will shell out some awesome tomatoes and jalapenos to do this.

Welcome, Zuly98!  So glad that you found the forum.  I'm new and have found a very friendly group of gardeners here.  There is a lot of information too... just type a topic into the "Search" box.

I look forward to hearing about your garden.  It sounds like you have a good variety of vegies.  You'll love the sfg method.

No, I have not purchased the pebbles yet. I hope to do that this weekend. With work and kids it' hard to keep up. So I do one thing at a time. I started everything from seed in peat pellets while I waited for these beds to be done. Took about 1 month.

I would strongly recommend that you use wood chips instead of pebbles. Weeding in rocks can be hard, the pebbles hop into the grass and bang up the lawn mower, etc. Weeding in wood chips is so easy. "Oh, look, a weed!" Pluck

Hi @Sanderson I went ahead and did wood chips. It was also more economical. Appreciate the advice.
