Hello from Celina, TX

Post  kathyinntx on 3/9/2011, 1:49 pm

Hi, I'm a new member and I'm just getting started. I'm working on sort of a combination of raised bed and square food gardening. I've got good soil here but it's got heavy clay. My first bed came out 5'x5', in a spot where mulch has rotted into the soil. I've got 2 Arapahoe Blackberries planted. It took a couple of days of work. I alternated layers of compost, soil and expanded shale and will mulch around the bed.

Welcome!

I was thinking "Celina, Celina...why have I heard of Celina?!"

Then it dawned on me. I was teaching at Valley View when y'all came and beat us at home and broke some kind of consecutive win record...lots of media attention and all at the game!Laughing

I won't hold it against you!

Welcome!

Nice to hear from so many folks! I do plan to plant some veggies and have a few herbs from last year that I plan to put in a bed...that'll be the first one in my garden area and the 2nd bed.
Elliphant, Bob and I don't have kids but we know about the Bobcats...every once in a while the 4 legged variety make an appearance in the neighborhood too. Smile

Welcome to the forum, Kathy.

Texas is erupting with new SFG'ers this spring. That's wonderful.

Keep us posted on how your garden grows.
