If you fall asleep thinking about your SFG, dream about your SFG and wake up thinking about your SFG.

go running out into the middle of a torrential downpour with 1/2" hail (with an umbrella...I'm crazy, but I'm not STUPID!) to find the torn fleece you put in the garbage because you get teary thinking that all your little plants could be smashed to a pulp by the hail.

I was in Wally World today....looking at the Hobby Farm Magazine and saw what looked like a SFG and almost yelled out "SFG". Now for sure I know I am hooked on SFG.

. . .start making a list of all your gardening friends and see if they'd be interested in splitting a seed order - consisting of ONE seed packet each of 75+ different varieties - it'll be a win-win for everyone! We all get to grow a wide variety of produce/fruits w/o much cash outlay. . .and no worries about seed storage. Smile

Posting this one for my dad

You might be a SFGer if:

You tell your wife your going out to work in the garden…

But instead you go to the SFG TT, just to hang out and have
a good time with your SFG buddies, cause you don’t really have any work to do in your SFG.

... If you spend most of your free time inside looking out the kitchen window to look at the garden.

... If you've seriously considered taking out said window and putting in a glass door instead for quicker access to the garden. Hey it can't be that hard can it?
