Hello all.

I have been attempting a SFG for about 7 years now and I love every second of it (except for the aphids last year - oh the aphids). The reason I started this hobby is that I wanted to taste a real tomato again - like the ones I remember from my childhood.

I look forward to learning from you all.

Thanks for the welcome!

I leave in what is essentially a Zero Lot Line neighborhood. I converted a flower bed into the garden about 6 or 7 years ago to 54 wonderful squares for gardening.

I have had great success with Garlic in the fall but not much else in the fall / winter.

As for the summers here, tomatoes were "iffy" until last year when I switched to determinates. I have had some success with some Japanese Cucumbers as well as squash (yellow and zucchini), raddishes, lettuce, and okra. 

Trying a few new things this year - different spacing configurations on the tomatoes and I am even giving corn a try.

Wish me luck!

Chris, Welcome to the Forum from California! glad you\'re here I have what is a little bigger than a Zero Lot Line, 60' x 100'. It has been a real puzzle over the last 5 years to figure out how I could squeeze small SFG beds tucked here and there around the back yard. We love to share and see photos, so don't be shy. Very Happy

glad you\'re here christoharris happy hi 
from Kelejan in British Columbia :canada: 

I think one thing you need for aphids is lots of air between the leaves and stems. I remember growing my tomatoes too close together and with moist weather that provided a haven for the little b------s.

I do hope you are enjoying your own home-grown toms.

christoharrism, welcome from Ottawa, Canada.

For aphids you may want to try using yellow solo cups and vaseline traps.
