Just saying a quick hello after registering.

You may ask, why Subversive_plot as a username?  Well, why not!  Also, my vegetable garden plot is a little unconventional.  It is the sunny edge of a little bit of forest on my property, a place where a few trees had to be cleared last July.  You could say I'm subverting a sliver of former forest.  I'm clearing out weeds, but trying mostly to keep digging to a minimum.  Tomatoes are being planted in holes left by decayed stumps, for example.  It's sort of an experiment.  I also have herbs and other plants growing in containers. 

I found this site while doing a search for information on how to straighten a tine on a garden fork (You see? I'm learning things already)

Hope to converse more later on.

Welcome to the forum, Georgia, and good luck with all your experiments - sounds fascinating!
I try to take one day at a time, but sometimes several days all attack me at once...

Thanks, I will take it easy.  I think a little heating may be needed to bend it properly (possible excuse for starting up the barbecue).  For now, it will suffice for digging out the Nandinas from my plot. 

When I can, I will post photos of my odd little garden.  At least the tomatoes are starting to bloom!  Basil and other herbs, and snow peas, I have been harvesting for quite a while.

Thank you, I hope to post pictures soon.

I also grow some of those not-vegetable-fruit-herb things.  Orchids mostly, flower garden, lawn.  I hope to post about those from time to time.  I should have a yellow Cattleya-type orchid blooming in a week or two.  Sunny yellow color  :D, fragrance like lemon furniture polish  :wacko:.

Experiments are always fun, aren't they?  It is a challenge to see what you can get away with and still get a worthwhile yield of vegetables etc.
