Looking through a seed catalog is not the best way to decide what to grow. They make it all look so good and sound so exciting that you can easily get carried away. I recommend you review your shopping list from last week and last month. That eliminates the "Oh, I'd like to grow that!" or "Wouldn't it be fun to grow peanuts? Start simple and easy with the foods you already eat regularly. Expand and experiment later on.
So often I hear "But I'm so anxious to start my SFG. I've always wanted a garden. I want to grow everything. Well, if you've been wishing and wanting to grow for twenty years, spending the first year getting experience and confidence with the SFG method won't make any difference. Then spend the next forty years enjoying your garden. Don't ruin a lifetime hobby by starting off too big.
