We have 6.32 acres vs .93 acres at the last place. My back yard is huge too!!! I was going to post a picture, but I couldn't figure out how to on my phone. I'll have to turn on my computer tomorrow. You're right though, a soil.test would be a good idea!!rainbowgardener wrote:Congratulations! Show us some pictures of your new place! How much land do you have?
I remember the issues with your old place some of which had to do with excess acidity of soil and water. You might want to start out with a soil test at your new place and maybe test the water too.
Thankfully, I'm just 5 minutes from where I was before! The soil here is actual soil though. My other house was a bunch of Sandy fill that they filled in an aquiferimafan26 wrote:Its nice to start a brand new garden, but it is a lot of work. I would second getting a soil test and checking out what other people are growing. If you are in a different zone, you may have to account for that and get plants suited to your local environment.
Thank you!!! I've missed you guys! It's been an interesting year! I'm hopeful that things will grow here. I have a good acre of cleared land, so there is a lot I can do. I'm going to clear more as well and build a proper greenhouse. My friend who is a farmer and owned a nursery etc, says this land is wayyyyyyy better and she can't see me having issues with it. I hope she's right!!applestar wrote:Congrats and good luck! Looking forward to hearing more about your new property and watching your new garden grow with you.
