Beth is making me look lazy.  I was born in 3 Rivers, MI, so I need to keep that Michigan spirit going. Rain is said to be letting up for a few days.  I'm headed outside at last!  We did our weekly hike yesterday enjoying the lack of rain drops on our heads. Charlie, I figured that if I bought seeds from the Pacific Northwest, I'd have a better chance that they will grow here. LOL

Karen, Another place that has heirloom seeds and plants for sale is  They are in Iowa.  I usually order some seeds from them and always order a few Gold Medal tom. plants.  Just got my 3 in the ground.  Ordered 4, but am giving one awayl.  Bob, I think what Miko is trying to say is that putting buckets, barrels etc under eaves or the edge of roofs catches more water than out in the open.

I have all my veggies planted in the greenhouse.  Just did the last of the them yesterday.  I have peas, carrots, lettuce, onions, basil, kohlarabi, and lavender all up and growing.  I did the tomatoes, and pole beans yesterday.  Now I need to get my trellaces built and my tomato cages painted then I will be ready to go.  Can't wait to be able to get out there.

Hi here in oz we have clay to they use gypsum to break it up , if you have a department that handles agriculture they should have a lot more knowledge of how to improve difficult soils! or a nursery?

Jeri it sounds like you may do well to build some above ground garden boxes.

By bountiful gardens do you mean a company, or simply how to grow bountiful gardens? If you would like to know about a company I have heard nothing about them. If you are asking about how to get your garden growing better, I still recommend the garden boxes. I have problems with clay up here in spartanburg SC and that has made all the difference.

Any hints about bountiful gardens in North Georgia would be much appreciated. Have been challenged by the clay, heat and bugs. I've been amending the soil for five years now and it's barely breaking down.

I have "mozzie" eating fish in my pond.  We give them away all the time. I think they are actually called Mosquito Fish Latin name: Gambusia affinis.  We noticed dozens of new baby koi, gold fish and gambusia in the pond yesterday during our teaser of sunshine.  We also have to be careful not to become a breeding ground for mosquitos.  Raining again today.  I think I will become Mother Nature so I can turn the faucet off.

Miko ... why don't you post a picture of your sheds and barrel and buckets setup?

Comment by Minako Sargent Fukuda on March 29, 2011 at 2:47pm
we have mozzies too, just use lids on buckets, or other things to stop them, somebody said to me goldfish in rainwater works!
