Subject: RE: BS: Mudcat Gardeners 2012
We're having the same blast of cold air down here in Wingate... Not much "gardening" going on... We got about half of the approximately 500 plants we brought down in the move planted and the other half are all bundled up together with mulched leaves and dirt around the perimeter with about an inch of un-mulched leaves over them...

I was really hoping to be further along with next seasons veggie garden but other priorities have trumped those efforts... The problem is that the area we want to put it is low and holds water... I took my tractor and used the front bucket to dig a trench to the pond but there are still areas that aren't draining... Looks like I'll have to build take the area and put down railroad ties and build the soil up into a raised bed... I doubt if we'll have a fully functional veggie garden next summer but I did build two 12 x 6 raised bed boxes when we got here so we'll have them plus whatever I can do in the new area...

'Bout it for now...
