I know, I know... I am what they call a plantaholic, I need therapy. I read about the TOH feature. I used to live in Prospect Heights myself, and restored a 4 fmaily brownstone there before moving to my current brick rowhouse.
Funny you mention Floyd Bennett: my fiance, from Washington State, got all excited when he realized that we were near the old Dodgers field of legend.
So maybe we will visit before long.

I live in Salem, Indiana-about 40 miles from Louisville, Kentucky. Lots of red clay and rocks here! I've been gardening most of my adult life. There is nothing I would rather do more. I grow lots (usually too many) of tomatoes, mostly heirlooms, peppers, melons, beans, sweet potatoes, trying white potatoes this year. It changes from year to year, but those are the regulars. I've planted 2 apple trees and a cherry since we moved to our new property. Hope to plant more fruit trees, raspberries, strawberries, blueberries, grapes, asparagus and much more as time and money allows. My garden is my favorite place; I pray, talk to God, work out my stress on weeds--much more economical than a therapist!

I live in the mountains of the Sierra Nevada near Yosemite. I garden, raise goats, and homeschool my children. Monday it was in the 90's and last night we had a hard frost and killed all of my apple blossoms.

I live in Albuquerque, New Mexico and I maintain it is imposible to make a compost heap here because of the dryness. Anyone disagree?

I live in Alton, Il just across the Mississippi from St. Louis. Our soil is bad cause it's the first year we've gardened, but that will change! It is mostly clay and hard. Plus lots of rocks! But things are growing anyway. Got all my seed from you.

I'm a Detroit artist and have gardened for 20+ years. Each year trying new things in my limited spaces. This year I'm getting a little bigger, by expanding to the side of the garage; using some vatical and up-side down growing; plus, I added some containers. I also help with my father's container garden and my friends small back-yard garden. I started so many seeds I'm giving a lot of starts to friends. As the gardens go I'll post picks and ask many questions. This year a friend sent me seeds from Baker Creek and I can't wait to harvest time.
