Hello everyone! I'm Maggie. I just joined DG last night...I'm already in love with this site! I'm currently in Alaska. My husband is USAF and we're being stationed in Warner Robins in mid June. I'm thrilled to have been introduced to DG by my cousin, Synda, and look forward to talking to new people. Have a wonderful day! :)
What is so funny she grew up here in Ohio,moved to Texas when she got married to an Air Force fella,that's where he was stationed (he also is from Ohio).They went from Texas to Alaska,and by the way she was at the time 9 months pregnant at that time...LOL.Now she is going to Georgia and is pregnant again.Needless to say this girl Loves an Adventure !!!!!!!
Welcome, Maggie! I was born in the same town and in the same year that "Gone With the Wind" premiered. Southern to the core. Wouldn't be anywhere else! You will love Georgia and Dave's Garden. No doubt at some point you will get to meet these good people at a Roundup. They are some of the best!
Welcome from me too! Just ignore the one upmanship about who's more southern. Unless someone's from Key West, I win. I've lived here almost forty years but was born and raised on Miami Beach. Fahgettaboud my NY accent! LOL
Welcome to the land of the LONG gardening season! I grew up in WR, my dad was stationed there, and I consider it home. It was a great place to grow up (although I know it's grown a lot!). I'm sure your family will enjoy it.
It's great that you are adventurous and excited about new opportunities.
Those of us Peaches who spent this steamy day in the garden are more like grapes (vinegar ones). I'm just coming in. Though I don't love to see my gardening days turn wet, they are good opportunities to rearrange and transplant. Carpe diem is my middle name!

Hey Maggie, I'm a little late, but not "The Late", Mike, and I say welcome to Georgia.You will find that there will be a humidity change, but we gardeners get more use to it, than those couch taters, who test the A/C.Nothing like Ga. growing. Mike
Oh, Charlene. Funny that you should mention a hat. I just bought one this year. Sure has been a life-saver during this heat! Came in last night and it was soaked! But nothing running down my face! yeaaa!
If I didn't I'd fog my glasses up and drown. Can't see with foggy glasses.
Most morning I'll go out to see what is blooming in my gardens and take the camera ,
Even then it is pretty warm and the headband and hat come in pretty handy.
I can't remember when it's been this hot in the middle of June. I went by Pike's on the way home from work and it was too hot to shop outside!! Maggie, I'm afraid your first summer here is going to be miserable. I'm a native and I can barely stand it. How did we live without air conditioning when we were kids?
Yea Maggie, you made it. Glad you are here. Definately, hotter than it usually is at this time. We have been having 115 with the heat index. Miserable!!!
Our youth group went whitewater rafting in Copperhill TN this past weekend, and the cabins we stayed in was NOT airconditioned and neither were the bathrooms. One small fan, talk about spoiled, I thought I wasn't going to make it. Nothing I hate worse is to take a shower and start sweating the minute you get out and can't get your clothes on because you can't get dry. My heart goes out to people who don't have A/C.
I am putting up peas and beans now, inside, and it is so hot. Just went and got a fan to blow on me. Everyone have a wonderful day!
Says the person coming from Alaska. I try to take the heat well, I think I do pretty good but it is the humidity that is killing me. I wish it was a TAD bit less warm than now. Mid 80's is as high as I really like it for good food and flower production here!
Welcome to Georgia! Note: It is not usually this hot. Wait awhile. I am a late transplant from Texas( 4th generation). Moving from zone 8B to 7A. I am a Master Gardener and herbalist. You might check into local county agent office and get some good information on your area. Check this website:
