When you are watching them replace the dropped ceiling at the office where you work and wonder "hmm...I wonder if celing track comes in 12" openings - that would make great grid material". And then you actually look it up and are disappointed when it doesn't.

You know you are a square foot gardener when...

You go out to eat with your husband and you finish your meal and you are eyeballing the to go container to see how many peat pots u can fit in it after you wash it. And you share this with your beloved and he says no honey, you know you are a square foot gardener when you go to home depot or lowes with your construction worker, wood worker husband and he is ready to leave before you!

Hey now, my mamma didn't raise no dummy. I know where my better half permanently resides. I continually tell her, and the public, that I "married up." And, it's not even questionable. For her to put up with my guff for the past 12+ years, really must be punishment for something she did in a former life. But, whatevs....she's trapped now....lol.

You know you're an SFG'r when.....you give your mother-in-law a tutorial on the hoophouse because it "might" get to freezing while you are gone.

...you're supposed to be "out of town" and you still make the Top20 active posters list for the day!! Yikes....addiction warning!

Yep, totally done that. Ended up bugging Home Depot service lady so bad, that she called up on her favorite contractor customer and had him walk me "down the aisle" and show me what I was looking for.

You Know You're a Square Foot Gardener When... - Page 7 Empty My favorite gardening song

Post  ander217 3/27/2011, 8:41 am

"The Garden Song" is my favorite gardening song. I always sing it to myself when planting. I raised my kids on the John Denver version, but after I found a Pete Seeger version on YouTube, I have to say I like it, too. Arlo's version is great, too, if you're in a peppy mood. His "extra verse" added for garden haters is so true.

Peter Seeger version:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u90qRE2F7CM

Arlo Guthrie version:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9QTj45cTB4U&NR=1

John Denver version:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D3FkaN0HQgs&NR=1


"You know you're a SFG'er if"... you find yourself changing the words to the above song to "inch by inch, grid by grid".
