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!

Hi! I am back! lol I stay on facebook pretty much all the time now. Do you do facebook? I live in Hot Springs. I know where Leslie is. We pass by there to go up to Branson!! I use to kinda like this forum. I thought it would help me in wanting to start a garden and such. I am a country girl, but I don't act like one. I will try and be on here more.
Grape: Happy belated holidays. I have been purusing nursery catalogs and websites again, the planting disease. I lost a montmorency cherry this summer to disease and wanted to replace it and of course couldnt stop myself from ordering another peach while I was at it. I have a Danube tart cherry that I planted last spring but wanted another Montmorency this time in a standard size on Mazzard root, last one was on a dwarfing rootstock and just didnt grow much at all, I was lucky to get an inch a year of growth.
I also want to put in a few more raspberries so looking at varieties I only have 3 now and love them, have enough blackberries now to open a U-pick place, so I am at least good on those. I also lost a red currant that i want to replace and one gooseberry, of course I will need a black current too and maybe a pink or white just to cover all of the bases.
Are you planting anything new this year? Hope all is well in Oregon.
