    Hot and Humid Virginia - What to plant in Summer?

    Trim lower branches off. And get you some sunshine on the ground. I guess you can only do that if you own. Talk about humidity I live in Louisiana!!! But I graduate from mount Vernon high school in 1979. Good luck with your garden.

    Question Realities of Compositing

    Sounds awful about termites in pile! Needs off ground with cider blocks or concrete! Maybe a tumbler would be your best bet. But the trees show how wonderful composting is for sure. Wood termites are dangerous around home. You can make a tumbler cheap or buy one whatever fits the budget. Please...

    Question Realities of Compositing

    Yep, shade on a slope. It has to stay moist but not soggy. If you can put it somewhere that is lacking vegetation, nutrition and structure of soil. Would be great because you can watch it come alive! You will never again not compost. Good luck Composting is the heartbeat of organic gardening!
