Appalachian Mts in Eastern Ky. Some say Zone 6b, some say Zone 7. Most years we get weather more close to the Mid-Atlantic than the Mid-West.

Re: Poll: Where do you live?
Happy Valley, Utah. Home of flood irrigation and July snowstorms. I'm fairly new to gardening; last year was my first attempt. I wasn't going to do much in the garden this year, but someone showed me a catalog with a huge assortment of different cucumbers, melons I didn't know existed, and colors of tomatoes I didn't know were possible. Well I ordered a bunch of seeds out of the website associated with that catalog, planted em, and have em growing now. I went back onto that website one day, saw a link that said forums, clicked on it, and the rest is history.......

Re: Poll: Where do you live?
I'm 40 mil from Jere Gettle's place.
Am an old broken down farmer that only gardens a bit now.
Allways have grown a garden never used poison on foods ( hey im eaten that stuff) but do use baged fertilizer , no harm IMO if organic matereal is allso added..
Have allways been more or less prepareing for what we call hard times (monatary break down , civil disorder ect) so organic & OP seed is a natural with us.

I live about 35 miles south of Kansas City on a crop farm which si in soybeans this year. I have been raising veggies on and off most of my adult life. I discovered heirlooms about 6 years ago and now almost all my garden is heirlooms. I can alot of veggies and fruit every year which really helps on the grocery bill. Right now I am keeping 5 families and the local senior center in squash. I love this site and hopefully will make it down to Baker Creek soon.

Re: Poll: Where do you live?
Live in Southwest MO about 40 miles north of Joplin MO and about 6 miles from the Kansas line. Been growing vegetables most of my adult life. My wife would argue with me on that as she says I'm still not an adult.

Re: Poll: Where do you live?
Yer hooked Vato- me too. I live close to the 4 corners region in northern NM, near Chaco Canyon, at 8,000 ft. elevation- the continental divide is my back yard, my front yard looks out to the wilderness with a 10k ft. mtn dominating the view. Elk, wild turkey, deer in my yard- they eat my garden, we eat them. (not the turkey, they're so ugly they're cute). Challenging growing environment, cold winters, hot dry summers, but it's a dry heat- neener neener to those in humid climates. We're in the boonies here, and that's the way we like it. Hate to have to go to the city to work- (why oh why couldn't I have been a trust fund kid?) I try to grow as much as I can to eat through the winter, and with the game hubby gets, we've got it good. I want to go back to Alaska for awhile tho. Man, you wouldn't believe the veggies they grow in the Matsu valley!
