I'm not even going to try to embarass myself with my Cuban-Spanish (I still conjugate like I'm eight years old) ... but I can still read some. I may be able to help you with some of the English words for things......

creo un otra palabra para es "veranda" aqui y baldores es "paver" o "flagstone" (piedra) .....o "tile" tambien

Pregunta para ti (por favor) ... como se dice 'veranito' (un otra palabra??) ... es la "little summer" (fin de Julio) en Miami ??? ..... no está seguro de que es lo que quieres decir

Sounds like square foot gardening would be perfect for you.

Also google translate is awesome

Welcome Val:

Please do not worry about your grammar. I just spent 3 years in Germany and my German grammar is very bad.

I answered your other post and told you that I celebrated my 25th anniversary in Buenos Aires. It is a wonderful city and I like it very much.



I have seen women looking at jewelry ads with a misty eye and one hand resting on the heart, and I only know what they're feeling because that's how I read the seed catalogs in January - Barbara Kingsolver - Animal, Vegetable, Miracle

Hi. Like you, I can read Spanish, but prefer to write in English. As stated, Google translate can fill in the gaps.

A patio to terrace is perfect for SFG (square foot gardening) and you are getting stated at the right time.

My good friend just moved to Uruguay (Montevideo area) and I hope to get down there and to Argentine also. Join the fray - you will learn alot!

We will not worry about perfection in language - just communication.

thanks a lot!

Post  valelab on 10/11/2010, 1:41 am

for answers!
I promise to my family dont login in Sundays! Smile
I´m reading the book, i don't finish yet, so maybe I better read first and then answer mor specifically...
I see a picture with a square on foot (for chair wheel, or wheel chair?), i´m worry the pressure of all of that on only 4 feet can move the tiles on the terraza (roof where you can walk, and put clothes to dry...) and the water can go inside the roof.
I have lot of macetas (pots?), and a lemon tree (i had 10 lemons last year!, it´s its 3rd year in my home), frambuesas (berry) and uva (grape) because i have 40 cm of soil in my patio, all around the wall (no sun in winter, at all).
Veranito means that we have temperature like summer for few days, and here weather is "wet" (húmedo), so we feel more the cold and the hot days.
Going to bed now, here is 2:40 AM.
I return in a few days, lot of work pending for the next 2 days!
Thanks a lot, and i´m very happy to meet all of you!
