Re: [nafex] an good idea.....maybe

I think it's a great idea. I don't know where you are, but from what Ginda
says you are somewhere south of us . Everyone but Claude is south of me! I
don't know anything about uploading or anything, but I think it would be fun
to be able to share ideas and look at what others are up to.
Several years ago, my husband and I were considering moving to central
Virginia. I couldn't wait because I was hoping to at last be able to start a
project that had been in the back of my mind for years. That was to make my
yard, minimum one acre to start, into a Garden of Eden. I knew it would take
years of planning and work, but I planned to combine trees, shrubs,
perennial and annual plants and plan them to either support or offset each
other so that everything had its optimum environment. I hoped to have some
of everything, companion plant and use herbs and vegetables to fill in and
balance out.
Unfortunately, we never moved to Virginia so I'll never know if I could have
pulled it off. I would be extremely limited if I tried to do it up here in
Zone 3.!?!?!? ............vic
