That is so funny, I think all of you people on heavy soil are so lucky!
I need to water daily, I have to try and build the soil up with manures and compost. It is a never ending task. I cannot grow anything well the soil is so poor. I tried to raise a half acre of corn last year and grew the best crop of tumbleweeds and ragweed in recorded history (granted the weeds got a real head start when I had to go to Florida for business for 6 weeks.)
I would like to plant Russian olives BUT the DNR would go ape poopy if I did. I know they are invasive, but they seem to grow on my soil. Oh well, I will find something. I can grow great jalapenos, but how many can you eat in a year? I can raise decent potatoes.
Between short growing season and poor soil gardening is a pain. I planted 30 cabbage last year to kraut, I did not get one head to mature.... I know I should stop gardening.... I just wish I had heavy soil and a rock, any rock, I do not have little rocks let alone a nice big beautiful rock!
Does anyone need any sandbur seeds?
I'd be happy to send u a box of rocks. If it fits it ships, right? And we certainly have plenty. 😀
