Hello everyone. I thought I would introduce myself rather than just come in blindly to the forums. I am gardening in zone 5A and started gardening off and on a few years ago..I thought this year I would start my prepper square foot garden...Ya right!!! Nope the drought had better ideas for hopefully next year will be this winter I can look for heirloom seed that I would like to add to my garden and seed storage.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Good luck, and I'll see you around the forums!

I just STARTED to acumulate gadgets for drip & spray irrigating this summer ... too bad I didn't start a year ago.

Greetings and Howdie'Do, autumn_prepper. Do check out the winter sowing forum here on Dave's. It really does work and it helps take advantage of the fall seed sales and/or trades.

Got some drip stuff previous season during the TX 100 year drought and more this past season. A good investment.

Only plant that did well here in last years drought was Broad ripple currant , the Gardener's delight or Sugar lump plant did okay handling the lack of water and the 100 degree temperatures ,
Still watered them some, not much though...
