"Sounds like you're off to a great start, John.  A good friend of mine says that the best thing to put into your garden at least 3 times a week, or oftener, is "your shadow".  You should be watching for pests and learning to…"

Hy Charlie....love your "greenhouse". I am a passionate veggie grower in Ireland....someone said my garden was like a Market Garden, but I only grow for us and family :)

I love getting dirt under my fingernails and being out and one with Mother Nature. I tried to beat HER this year, but SHE put me in my place..LOL!

Would you like to be friends here?

Kind Regards,

Catherine from Ireland

Great photos! Where in Tx. are you? I noticed your nice garden shed/greenhouse structure and I'm in the process of building one. What all do you have going on in there? Composting? Any suggestions?

Always happy to have another TX gardener as a friend! Quite a garden ya got there! I like you're old mail Jeep, by the way. I drive an old Jeep myself. I want to get my Master Gardener's Cert. I saw that you are a MG, so maybe you could tell me how to go about getting it?

Charlie - I saw your post saying gout was slowing you down - I only have gout in 1 toe butinstead of the prescription medicine (which gave me dry mouth) I am taking a time release black cherry extract tablet and it is working great!  Just wondered if you had tried cherry extract , or tablets or pure juice or dried cherries!
