Hi all. I live about 25 mi NE of Huntsville (so I can keep an eye on all my relatives in the pokey) and moved from congested Dallas. I am in tall timber country--the piney woods of TX and my area has its own micro-climate. The soil is a loamy sand that will NOT stay wet but, I am told, it will grow anything.

I have never raised my own food--traveled way too much to be in one place long enough to really garden. But now I will not leave unless in a pine box.

Know nothing but already have romane and butter lettuce growing. Tastes great. My fertilizer is muck from the bottom of a slough on N side of lake Livingston. Great stuff even if a bit stinky.

Decided I did not want geneticly altered seed so got some from heirloom seed people and some Amer Indian. I intend to try to grow all my own veggies. If the deer will cooperate?

Am now trying to find nurseries with native plants in Huntsville or down to north Houston---which is about 75 mi for me. If any of you know of native plant nurseries then please speak up.

Have listened to Howard for umpteen years and agree totally with the natural methods. Most especially now when the industry is creating transgenic seeds and plants. The thought of seeds with altered DNA and maybe frog genes added is really creepy and, I think, a danger to our own species. Only time will tell on that.

I am interested in all the help/info I can get.
