I have been reading up on it some, and thought I would try it this year. Our soil here is mostly red clay with loads of rocks and tree roots. I have been adding things like compost, leaves, peat moss, horse manure and it is still rocky red clay. You could spend eternity removing the rocks here, and never remove all of them from your little patch of garden. I may have mentioned this little quip, not sure, but a friend once told me, "Do you know what they call half inch gravel in Missouri? The answer is TOPSOIL. So, I am collecting plain brown cardboard to put under them and tame some of the weeds, and have a few straw bales already. My potatoes have gone to seed, so I have them in a bucket ready to plant--only it is too early. I have garlic to plant, and parsely seeds that might go out now. I think I will add the garlic and parsley to my tubs of different things...It will get those chores out of the way. I need to look at my seeds again and see what won't mind being planted early. My compost is in barrels now. I had to get rid of my old compost pile --it was full of black walnut roots, so I shoveled it over into the bog in my horse pasture... I started over with the barrels that were given to me. My son wants to try growing tomatoes in buckets. I hope he does. Maybe we can have a "contest" on growing tomatoes? (Guess who will get to care for them when he is on the road driving trucks?) He watches a lot of gardening videos on you tube. I had some store tomatoes in the fruit bowl, because "they" have been saying not to put tomatoes in the fridge. The cats found them and played ball with my tomatoes on the kitchen floor. I gave those to the chickens. Tomatoes WILL be going in the fridge now.
