For Bob, yes I have vineyards all over the place however in less than 8 weeks I will be moving to another zone 9 but it's in California about 800 miles north along the 101 just shy of the redwoods. The property in in the redwood forest outside of Willits and has just a tiny bit of sun so I'm getting a new education on vertical gardening to be able to have a garden at all.
Thanks Jan to think it used to be 2 huge locust trees, bit of grass, bricks and lava rock.
It finally rained here they had been saying that for a week now. If it did the wind blew it dry. Gray skies out there again today I am so SAD. But I'm glad God watered my veggies today so I didn't have to drag a hose. I pretty much got something planted in all the fakey raised beds already and the peas and few other things by the garage. I'm contemplating what to do with the space by the back fence, there will probably be volunteer tomatoes, I hope the little ones that are a mouth full of yum. But I'm not supposed to eat them and most people I used to give them to are gone now. I want to maybe plant the whole area in edible flowers or plant the edible flowers all over the place in the herb garden, around other foods ect. The problem area by the fence that stays shaded most of the time was supposed to be the salad area but slugs moved in and the lettuces actually do better with more sun. Same with the leeks I grew there last year they grew but probably not as well as they could have. I need to get my buns out and build more trellis/verticle growing structures.
Bonnie, I like your garden idea of direct sowing! It looks like you just sprinkle seeds in a area, not in a row?
Vicky, you have a beautiful veggie garden site!!
Has anyone grown Stevia here? and if you have how do you use it?
I think the weather man is so mixed up..... He says the Northern states are going to be above average through June and the lower areas under average temps..... then he says it could all change.....
Well here in Oregon I got a foot of snow overnight and it's still coming down. My poor daffodils which are in full bloom are now covered. This is indeed a crazy year, we seldom get any snow!!!
Looking forward to sharing and learning
Dave.. good you joined this group. It's very diverse with gardeners from all over the country and world with very differing soil and gardening conditions...but good basics is good basics!
Muriel, perhaps a low spot or a layer of clay that is a foot or so down that the water can't get through?
