My 1st SFG bed

Well, after planing and reading the SFG book I finally got my bed set up and planted some seeds. Got a few plants and planted them there also. This is my first attemp to grow veggies, I am looking forward to the experience. I found out my local HD sells the dirt mix, too bad I already had started mixing my own, I still bought a bag, Iwill use it later.
I planted brocolli, corn, peppers, a couple of different lettuce.
I got to get me a plastic owl to keep the birds away.
wish me luck!

Good luck! I had no idea how addicting gardening could be. Keep us updated!

RE: My 1st SFG bed

make your own dirt mix of peat moss, sand, vermiculite.

Luey, we found a rubber snake at Dollar Tree. Not sure he kept anything away, but he was cute laying there on the edge of our garden bed. When I sent pictures of my garden to family and friends, they wanted to know if that was a real snake. Diclemeg, you mean peat, compost, vermiculite, correct ?

RE: My 1st SFG bed

thanks for the encouragment everyone. I could get me a snake, if nothing else it would make the dogs bark and my son happy, LOL
