What's the soil like? What grows well?
I grew up in Wisconsin and was able to grow so many things there with little to no attention other then putting them in the ground. I moved to Georgia about four years ago(Atlanta area) and was really disapointed with the ease of growing things here. It is a clay type of soil that you have to mix a lot of dirt into....and thngs just are not that easy to grow here. You have to water them often, and sometimes when it rains, the rain beats down so hard and floods garden beds. I'm wondering what the soil/gardening situation is in southern Cali? My husband has a possible job offer in Lake Forest, and another in Irvine. What grows well there? What type of soil is it? Thanks for any help.
