    New house, new garden.

    Well we finally got moved from that rat infested place. We didn't even keep our sofa and loveseat for fear we would bring along a hitchhiker but took them to the dumping station. Our house here has a large backyard. There is a good size raised bed in the back (12x12 approximately) but it is...

    Hello from Arkansas

    I'm so glad I found this site. Easy gardening is the only way I garden, lol. We recently moved back to the boonies and have room for gardening, chickens, and of course all the kids and grandkids. My teenage sons reluctantly help me in the garden.
