As an off & on member of the gardens list I have missed seeing your
humorous posts & have wondered what became of you.  As someone else
missed you too & posted a question as to your whereabouts we were told
of this list & here we are.  I was looking for a list with a little less
traffic & so far this is a piece of cake.
I garden here in East Tennessee on a lot approx. 50x150 in the city.  I
grow mostly perennials but love shrubs & grow lots of unusual annuals
that I grow from seed beginning in late winter & early spring.  I am in
the process of removing what little bit of lawn I have left in the yard
& replacing it with plant material.  My landscaping is mainly to attract
birds, butterflies & beneficial insects as I do not use any chemicals in
my yard. I just let the insects duke it out & the best insect almost
always wins.
We have had almost no rain in the last 6 weeks so my garden is beginning
to look sad & ready to be put to bed for the winter.  They are saying we
might get some thunderstorms later tonight so I'm keeping my fingers
I'm glad to have found your list & happy to know you're ok.
