Meriweathers looks awesome - definitely will go next time we are in the area. I suspect that won't be too far away, really did love Oregon. We stayed in Portland for a couple days, then drove a bit East and then down to Mt. Hood and stayed there. Then through the middle of the state, then back up the coast. Then another couple days in Portland. We'd like to do that trip again but this time go up and around in WA.

For food in Portland we ate at a few oyster bars and seafood places, all good but nothing crazy. The great stuff was Pok Pok Thai, Bamboo Sushi and Kingdom of Roosevelt. Overall just loved the whole restaurant scene. Charlotte has great food as well, just not the abundance that we saw / found in Portland. Plus we loved walk through all the old historic neighborhoods that the restaurants were in - all the great old homes plus the gardens that seemed to be at every other one

Oh, and not soliciting, happy to provide advice and help even if another agent is working for ya!

Well...I am a realtor so I can definitely answer these for you! "Best" areas to plant and grow would be all over - the lot itself, trees, etc, will be your biggest concerns but we don't so much have better or worse areas for growing - not a lot of micro climates here in Charlotte (region). If you want some acreage you are already looking in the right areas - there are also some nice options north of the city (you are currently looking south and east). I'm guessing your family lives down there? If you are interested I can send you 1+ acre options that you can check out to see what is out there and what it is priced at. Southwest Charlotte and Fort Mill and around Lake Wylie you'll find great stuff - I've actually looked at just acreage down there. If you wish send me an email scott@janusclt.com

We were just visiting. Great food (something we are really into) and the "farm to fork" push there is enviable. Two of the best meals I've ever had were in Portland. That said I also love Charlotte. Good food scene here too, great old funky neighborhoods, good diverse folks if you know where to look. I'll check out your garden pix

Good! Not surprised you didn't see many gardens, not a lot around here though some neighborhoods have more than others - our does, NoDa. What will bring you to NC? We LOVED Oregon.

I really enjoyed our chat, too! It was fun hearing about your past exciting adventures (i.e. World Series of Poker)!!

What kind of surgery did your husband have?  I hope he's doing ok and recovering well.  I'm only going to be in Oregon for a few days and with mom & dad being 86 & 88 I need to spend all the time with them. Next time I hope! Thanks for remembering.

Leaving your gardens - How to do it???

Posted on November 15, 2013 at 8:36pm 11 Comments

As many of you know we have been here 10 years and most every day I have been actively expanding and designing my gardens taking them from bare pasture to pretty darn close to 'garden nirvana' (well in my mind anyway LOL).... That said - we are tossing around the idea of pulling up stakes and moving across country to NC to be close to daughter and grandkids.... BUT how in the world can I leave now when my gardens are finally maturing and I can enjoy them????  I 'know' it can be done, but how…

Don't believe seed packaging photos and hype!

Posted on May 18, 2013 at 8:35pm 3 Comments

Note to self: Don't believe packaging! I purchased 'Cherry Red' Nasturtium for my hanging baskets (paired with white Alyssum, blue Lobelia and light pastel Pink Wave Petunia) ....

'Cherry Red' Nasturtium is a ORANGE as ORANGE can be!!! Florescent ORANGE...

Did I mention there is not a HINT of CHERRY!!!!

So if you happen to drive by and think "Wow,…

Seed Tape - Home Made - Easy and 'Cheap' :)

Posted on March 4, 2013 at 11:37pm 9 Comments

There are lots of posts online and even a few You-Tube videos that explain how to make the seed tapes ... But here is my method:

Materials:

2 small bowls (one for glue, 1 for seeds)

Roll of 2 ply white toilet paper

Small paint brush

Scissors

1 Tbls flour

Seeds (small ones - larger seeds are easily direct sown in the garden)

Zip-Lock baggies

Measuring tape (optional)

Grab a roll of toilet paper (I use Charmin)...…

Some have asked to know a little more about our gardens so here you go :)

Almost 9 years ago we moved here and embarked upon changing raw pastureland into the garden of our dreams.

Our home is situated in the beautiful Pacific Northwest's Cascade Mountain foothills, alongside the Santiam River. The soil is a sandy alluvial loam. Drainage is very good, but additional humus is really needed and is a priority. We compost most everything from the yards coupled with manure from the cattle that graze our pastures. Once composted it is added to the planting beds…
