Squeaky New From Tennessee

Post  JacknTn on 3/28/2013, 9:57 am

Big 'HOWDEEEEE' from mid-Tn.
Brand new idjut here trying to learn how to garden. I am barely an amateur so take everything
I say with a grain of horse manure.
However, since my trail leads from Texas to Louisiana to Middle Tennessee, I am mainly confused
or conveniently forgetful.

Luv to BBQ, listen to zydeco music, hate wearing ties, and have 6 pair of my favorite boots.

I will pester ya with a thousand questions and will expect only the one perfect answer. cheers

Welcome Putnam Plateau Planter

Post  Hardcoir on 3/28/2013, 11:06 am

Cookeville's climate is quite different than ours here 80 miles to your west, but SFG works great in Sewanee and Monteagle, so it will work great in Cookeville.

I am an old enough codger to have seen your aging football coach Watson Brown play for Vanderbilt back in the late 60's and early 70's. He could have been a Hall of Fame baseball player too.

Question away, but for the best answers, you need to send some BBQ brisket (Texas-style) to the Music City. I rarely have time to take use our oversized Brinkman smoker. We actually use the flat top of the side-box and the wooden shelf to harden some of our veggies.

Welcome

Post  Windmere on 3/28/2013, 1:48 pm

JacknTn,

Welcome, welcome, welcome! I am also very new to serious gardening. I have found this forum to be rich with information and everyone is tremendously helpful. You will fit in just fine.

I am from the Central South in Fayetteville, GA (20 miles south of Atlanta).

Originally from Los Angeles, I'm afraid I'm a city boy adjusting to the suburban south. I am slowing making the adjustments to southern living (been here seven years).

As I said, welcome glad you\'re here and Happy Gardening!!!

Again, get on up here to the plateau and I will tell you what you are doing wrong only if
you tell me what I am doing wrong. (Of course over a slab of ribs and a toast with a
Guinness)
Thanks again for the welcome,
Jack~
