Hello from Ky I discovered this site when looking up info on Kefir and goats milk.
My DH and I are not exactly homesteaders but we enjoy outdoors and gardening. Looking forward to learning and sharing information with everyone.
My garden has come in and I would love to see your garden photos and share these photos with you. :)

Very nice garden! I can't believe how big your plants are already. I guess a couple hundred miles south of me makes a BIG difference. I have been thinking of a green house. I just don't have the time, or I'm not around enough to try to harden off the young plants before putting them out in the garden.

Here is my web page. A little of everything.

Wow! Nicely done ... everyone!

Gmom, your tomatoes are beautiful. :) I have lots of green tomatoes on my plants, but none yet ripe. Although I'm becoming increasingly suspicious that the reason I have no ripe tomatoes is my supposedly critter-proof tomato patch isn't so critter proof. :rolleyes:

Good inspiration! :D

Lovely.

I have inherited an overgrown jungle with an old sick apple tree. Which I know will have to be felled. :waa:

I tried to check out your link to THE UNDERGROUND SOCIETY. Why do you have to sigh up before you can even read posts? I always read a lot before I sign up. Just to make sure I want to be a part of the forum.

Sorry I am not trying to hi jack this thread. :eek:

Buckrun, many forums are like that. Mother Earth News is also like that. You can't even peek at it without registering. There is even one portion of Homesteading Today which is not available to non-registered users. Many others only allow registered members to post. Our forum is one of the more flexible ones such as now when I am posting as a guest rather than a registered member. The system works well while keeping most of the weeds and pests out of the garden.

We don't have apples but the neighbor does. We gave her tomatoes and she ask up to take all her apples from her tree. The deer were the only ones eating them.
So today the heat index is 109 and the greenhouse is full of sliced apples drying on the shelves lined with wax paper. It smells wonderful in there. My green house was a little shed in the yard that was quite an eyesore when we bought the house.
My DH started to take it down and he discover when he removed the roofling and exposed the frame that it would be perfect for a Greenhouse. He took the siding halfway down the sides. Left a small window on one side. He then cover it with two layers of 6mm plastic, one inside the frame and one outside.
In the early spring when it is 35-40 outside on a sunny day it is easily 65 inside the Greenhouse. Our next project will be to get water out to it. As you can see we have an extension cord for electricity.
We want to plant a couple of apple trees but are undecided on what kind we want. We are in zone 6 any suggestions?
