Reintroducing myself.

Post  Weedless_ on 10/18/2011, 5:33 pm

So, I was foolish enough to embed my place of living in my nickname, but guess what, I am not in Atlanta anymore!
I have moved into Zone 8, baby! Hot! Literally! It was in the 90s yesterday, and though it's been cooling down somewhat, it's still considered summer in some other zones Smile.

So, we survived the move, and as my first act of "normal" life, I am putting together my new SFG boxes already. I know it's late to plant, but I want to be prepared, so that I don't have to put them together in February.

I am going with two 4 x 8 this time, and they are going to be deeper, too! That means twice as much of Mel's mix, but who's counting when it comes to momma's hobby.

I also ordered two green-house-like row covers that fit just right over 4 x 8 boxes, and will serve as cold-frame/seed starter/row cover. They have zipped windows, and if I get sick of them, they fold like kids' tunnel into a small flat box. Woo hoo!

So, fellow Alabamians, where does a nice honest organic gardener get free compost these days?
Any advice on Alabama-specific menaces? Also, who carries Vermiculite in Montgomery area?

Welcome back! It'll be interesting to watch you adjust your calendar and become a "winter gardener."
