Welcome to our forums!
This online gardening community is different, political, and organic. I decided to start these forums so gardeners would have a free place to discuss heirloom gardening, gene-altered food, seed saving, natural politics and products. We are dedicated to saving our food and horticultural heritage, and hope you enjoy this forum for the free-thinking gardener!
Wishing you great gardening,
Thanks Red, for your PM. I don't like to do confrontational posts, but many posters were failing to get through to Minnie. Someone had to do it, and I hope I did it tactfully. Still wish it hadn't been necessary... condescending as she was, she meant well. Now that she has posted photos, you can see there is still a great deal of wasted space, but I haven't got the heart to call her on it. Best to stop beating this horse, and let it live.
Haven't got the time yet to compose my opening post for a discussion on vertical gardening, but I'll try to get it started this week. Yes, one of the reasons I trellis is to create windbreaks, which create pockets of a warm(er) microclimate. I plant peppers, okra, and other heat-loving crops within those zones.
For the most part, I just lurk on Idig, unless I've got something positive to contribute. You've had me laughing out loud on more that one occasion - keep up the good work!
