I am loving your article series. The best part is being able to keep up with the timeframe and the step x step. Only thing is that I'm in Zone 9a and can continue growing with a fall/winter garden of brassicas, root crops and greens. What zone is Sheila in, or is she a sorta "Twilight Zone" character that encompasses all us growers?
Either way, I'm glad to know you both!
Linda ^^ (doing the "I've still got time to put seedlings in the ground by Thanksgiving break, even though the drain and new fence have yet to be installed, and I haven't got one thing in place yet" dance!) I'm dancing as fast as I can!
So glad you're finding this all helpful. I will admit, it's geared to my area zone 7 or thereabouts. Much colder than me can't do so much of the fall and winter crops, but you sure can make good use of winter in zone9. Even here I could have had Sheila planting lettuce in August. Once I started writing this simple little beginner stuff I had a hard time deciding how much to include, and not overwhelm.
Anyway, I hope most readers can extract the basic principles, like getting more organics into the soil at some time.Thanks for reading and commenting! Now go back out there and dig!
