First of all, I would like to wish everyone a very happy, prosperous and good-growing New Year in advance of the change from 2008 to 2009. Secondly, I would like to let everyone know how MUCH I APPRECIATE this site and all the people involved: it is so GREAT to learn from people all over the world about differant methods of raising plants, problems/solutions associated with such! I THANK YOU ALL!
Am in the process of trying to figure out IF I can grow everything in containers I'd like to in the coming year, and where the devil to put them! My yard(s) aren't small but there's a lot of "spot" shade places due to perimeter trees on property. Have an area between house and massive workshop that would be IDEAL for vines except for two factors: antelope invade that section to browse on "succulent, ABUNDANT weeds" (got to cater to these critters all I can! Are being forced off native feeding grounds under the guise of "progress"), and the area receives NO air circulation at times, temps can get upwards of 120 degrees between the buildings on a still (YEP! Actually get those every millinium in Wyoming) day. As I don't want the fenced in area, where I grow 100% of plants now, looking like a hodge-podge container nightmare, have spray painted "regulars" with a color that blends in with color scheme of ground and makes them almost invisable from a distance..think I have MORE work ahead of me if I want to eat well in the future, cram things just a bit closer into a somewhat pleasing style (isn't that part of the gardening EGO tho'? Gotta have everything "just so".. container-wise or in a plot/lottie. Us gardeners are PROUD people and WELL we SHOULD BE when it comes to eye-appeal, square foot/companion planting and blending everything into surroundings, PLUS what we attain from it all for personal use or to give away to someone needy. We're GOOD at what we do! Need I say more?)
Tears in beers; weeds from seeds; rain and pain; flops in crops: may your New Year be an exceptionally productive, GOOD one regardless. My best wishes to ALL, Weeds n Seeds
