Moving from Ohio to Alabama
We will be moving sometime this year to northern Alabama, up in the mountains. I imagine gardening there will be quite different than what I have been used to. I don't even know what Hardiness Zone the area is. I do know that it is just a few inches of very sandy soil over rock so the soil will probably need LOTS of amendments. Anybody here from around that area? If so, with what do you amend your garden? When do you start tomato and pepper seeds for planting out? Is it even worth trying to grow cool weather cole and lettuce crops? So much to think about my head is already starting to spin...
