Need some encouragement this morning?
Alice, my friend, reader, and seasoned gardener started a new garden “from scratch” when they moved to Northern Nevada. Alice told me they had one sloping acre of rock and horrible soil three years ago when they moved in. When she wrote to me this year in May she said,
“Now in our 3rd year the soil in the beds is just amazing. I used non treated glass clippings, leaves, topsoil, shredded brown paper bags, cardboard, egg cartons and our own compost to layer the beds. Cover with straw and let them sit until planting time. We get some snow in the Winter, but this year was a warm one and your winter sown project was perfect. I was able to utilize the garden space for additional months.”
As I said — Alice is a seasoned gardener in her early 70’s and it makes me happy that she’s benefiting from TMG.
She wrote to me this morning and in two short sentences and one picture put the icing on the cake:
“Thank you for your post about all peppers (bell) turning red if left on the plant. It worked.”
Good job Alice! Thanks for sharing.
