When your power is out and there's a down tree across your drive, but you have the tree cleared then drive into town to find an internet connection so you can post an update on how your SFG survived the storm...

As I just posted on another thread, I am humbled. I never even thought of putting my little ones next to my bed for their last night with me. I am ashamed.

(But I cannot wait to tell my husband what he can look forward to this year!)

So, does a bigger freezer/new pantry/even MORE canning jars as a result of SFG come out of the SFG budget or another category?

. . .when you get roped in to help out at the local Volunteer Firemen's Dept. end of monthly Breakfast fundraiser and you bag all the orange peel, eggshells, coffee grounds and teabags for your compost pile.

By the end of the morning everyone was putting the stuff in a separate bin for me. Now all of it has bin chopped and mixed and in my bin. Lovely!

I think I will be "volunteering" again next month and hoping no one else catches on.

Freezer and jars come out of the grocery budget, pantry is home improvement as it is an investment.

lol! , Middlemamma. Been there and done that!

You know you're a Square Foot Gardener when you'd rather shop for seeds than clothes...

when you find yourself puchasing roasted peanuts at the grocery store and you're not sure whether you really want them for the taste of the peanuts or if you just want to compost the shells!...

when you've always had the typical female reaction of "ewwwww" to worms, but you're suddenly thinking they may be your best friends!...

when you're not really sure whether you really want that next pot of coffee for the coffee or the grounds!

when you spend hours researching online to find shrimp compost in your area and you're ridiculously ecstatic when you find not just shrimp compost, but crab compost, as well! And when you're planning a "day trip" some weekend to a city several hundred miles away because it's the closest place you can find to purchase cotton burr compost!

Catution: this is not a "funny" comment, but oh so true.

You know you are a SFG when you hear about the latest E. coli outbreak, shake your head, say a prayer for those who are sick if you pray, and head out to the garden and pick a salad, then promptly sit down and thank the Lord you need not worry about the latest outbreak.

Latest outbreak.

you watch a tv show on remodeling houseboats and you see a section of the roof top deck where they put in a second sitting area and you want so badly to just reach in the tv set and say no, there's enough space there for 3 4x4 sfg beds.

When you meet a total stranger and surprisingly find out you both have sf gardens. Instant bonding ensues like an old friendship and comparison stories follow for the next 30 minutes. Happened to me just this week.

When you starve your houseplants because you are outdoors working the SFG.

The first thing you do in the morning is make a pot of coffee and while it is finishing you rush out to the compost bin and toss in all of yesterdays scraps and coffee grounds - in your robe and PJ's.

When you examine every weed you pull in other areas of your yard to see if it has gone to seed. If not - into the compost.

When you measure the value of real estate not by the location or size of house but by the number of 4x4 square foot beds you can place on the property that will get full sun.
