Julie, your experiment on Carlos's land sounds great - that is a good point about the amount of sun in the winter. I want to have a few beds in a small area right in my own yard, so will look for the part that holds on to the sun for the biggest part of the day. If I know that it is allowed to bring seeds into the country, I'll look here for seeds of plants that are shade-tolerant - oh, and maybe up on the new flat roof would be a good place for some chard, lettuces, and herbs, in pots - would they also be more resistant to bugs, etc. up there?? |
Too bad about the large-scale organic garden's problems...true, there will be a lot to learn, gardening in an area where there is no winter frost to kill off some of the pests and diseases. That's why I want to start with a small investment of time and money, so the lessons dont hit so hard! Any feedback, advice, etc. will be appreciated.
