Re: [gardeners] Where I garden (

Hello all. Has anyone mentioned gardening in the mid west? Well that is where 
I try to garden. We have very heavy clay soil here and the summers can turn 
into dry ones very quickly. I have only been gardening for about 4 years. And 
of course as a novice in the beginning I made a lot of mistakes along the way 
which of course I am now paying for :) Did not amend the soil first and of 
course I have never had a plan to work with. When I moved into this house it 
had nary a flower to its name. Can you imagine a yard with no flowers? Unlike 
George I'm not a veggie lover(wish I was) but my husband loves them so I try 
to grow a few for him. My main intrest is perennials and herbs. I belong to 
several garden clubs locally and call myself a frugal gardener since I get 
most of my plants thru swaps or at the plant sale we hold for very reasonable 
amounts :)
