are carrying groceries into the house and stop on the way back to the car at the garden (that is just outside the side door!) and do a quick weeding of the garlic bed before bringing in another armload of groceries.

...scold the kids for throwing away an apple core, banana peel or potato skins.

...if you dream all night about making garden boxes.

...see things at the side of the road, that someone threw away, and say "Hey I could use that for (input SFG item here)".

Just a few I've experienced so far. LOL

. . . you bake cookies to give to the guys next door hoping they will let you have the lumber from the old deck they are ripping out. . . which you later carefully remove all the nails from and before lovingly stacking it for later use, wondering if you should sand the finish off (just to save a few bucks)

have your son ask, "isn't there ANYTHING we could do in the garden now?", after spending 5 minutes dumping a scoop of compost on every unused square, 'just because' and to CREATE work in the garden (gave us something to mix around in the squares)! Smile

You might be a Square Foot Gardener if you are assigned the "welcome to our store" duties you stand there with the ALL NEW book in your hand and say, "WOW, have you seen this!"

instead of reading a book in bed, you have a couple of pencils and grids representing your existing beds, and you stay up wayyyyyyy too late because it's so much fun.

(And so much more work than anything during the growing season!)

... get upset & slam on rubber gloves to go thru the recycling bin or garbage can because OTHERS may have thrown away precious sfg, compost or gardening materials

... drive hubby crazy as you think twice, three or four times about possible re-use of remnants of every home improvement project

... begin to worry about yourself as container hoarding becomes a way of life

(but I'm having fun You Know You're a Square Foot Gardener When... Lol !!)

see a 'different' bagged compost than you already have in your stash of composts for bed expansion and get so excited, you and the kids do a little dance in the store. (Just happened, *grin* we were at TSC and saw they got in a shipment of 'garden compost' (we don't have enough of our own for bed expansions).
