Gardening in Oconee County?
I was wondering what the seasons and pests are like when gardening in Georgia! I grew up in TX and now live in the Northeast so I've lived in some very different environments.
Up here, don't plant until mid-May and stop planting EO Sept. But you don't have to water your plants much! The soil is great, too.
In Central TX, all of my plants were on life support it seemed. The soil was THIN and had rock about 4" down. But the season started early (March) and ended late (Nov) :))
Up here, we get biting flies when spring emerges, ticks are an issue in the summer, and we have voles/woodchucks. As for big creatures, we have bears, moose and ticks are a problem in the woods in summer (Lyme Disease is not uncommon). In central TX we had tree scorpions and fire ants.
What do you have in GA? There's a chance I'll end up there and I want to make sure I'm not dreaming that the grass is greener! (Which, btw, does the grass die there in summer?)
