where are the TN gardeners?
I didn't see a TN forum; are they here?
I just moved to east TN from FL and am preparing to put in my garden. This hard clay has me a bit intimidated! I'll have a good amount of leaf litter/food compost. I'm assuming I should also work in some manure. What about lime? Should I raise the bed? It's on a slight slope, will get good sun from about 9:30- 3 and filtered light before and after that.
In FL I mulched my bed heavily for weeds. Should I plan on doing that here as well? I figured I could start onions in early spring...end of Feb? When can I start the summer veggies?
