We have fungus, bugs, and soil different from other places, on top of the weather issues: We are so topsy turvy from everyone else and many plants do not take our heat. I still have much to learn about growing down here, even though I am a longtime resident.
For example, I went to Lowe's one day about a month ago and they had onion bunches: I could not resist! I bought three bunches, got them in the ground and then read that they are supposed to be planted in the fall... Grrr....me banging head on wall....
I have now divided my seeds into a spring and a fall box. Still, I could not resist trying to grow some celeriac this summer.
So: Any other southerners want to chat about our dirty sand, flood or drought, backwards growing conditions?
