Greetings, All,

I am new to this forum but not at all new to gardening.  My parents came up through the Great Depression and learned to make do with what you had.  Part of that included growing a vegetable garden each year.  Our typical garden was about a quarter acre and that produced plenty for the three of us as well as a sufficient amount for putting up.  

Time has long passed and I have retired.  We live in a suburban neighborhood with a small yard; not enough room to have a decent garden.  Fortunately, I was able to get a plot at the local Senior Center Community Garden.  I've been using square foot gardening methods with great success.  

While I have been gardening for a long time, I still look for more information regularly and look forward to learning from y'all and sharing what I know.

See you in the garden ...

Welcome to the forum PapaKins, given the developments of the virus I think history could repeat itself and people will have to learn to make do what they have and think about establishing a vegetable garden.

glad you\'re here PapaKins03 happy hi 
from Kelejan in British Columbia :canada: 

I remember my foster-dad taking me to his allotment and from him I found out about gardening by being allowed to plant a potato, and eventually digging up all the lovely potatoes and  were used for that Sunday dinner while I proudly boasted about providing the potatoes for that meal.

Then came school, work etc. then a few years ago I took up SFG and have enjoyed it ever since. I remembered my first year when I kept myself in salads for that first summer.  All from planting that potato.

Welcome PK (your shortened handle) from Ottawa, Canada. We are looking forward to seeing your photos. What version of SFG are you doing ... amended soil or Mel's Mix?
