I had a friend (lost track of her now) who went from zone 0b to zone 7. She found it quite challenging, she said, to garden in such a high zone. She had beautiful gardens where she was.

Uh yeah, and blackflies. Was that Hunnerbun, Marcia?

Good luck in your warmer endeavours, IntotheArk!

Good for you!
I bet, making a living from your garden is easier in Shuswap.
Are you not sorry, leaving all that investment, incl. your hard labor, sweat & soul behind??

RE: 2b or not 2b

No, Gil, it was Alta. I met her in a different forum but she sometimes posted here. She had a great website but has since taken it down and i lost track of her. I think she wanted to be lost track of. :) I'd forgotten about Hunner. I think last i remember she said they were leaving Thompson.

I can't remember all that Alta grew but she grew lots, and she also took care of the gardens at the zoo in Thompson. They have a short growing season but all the extra light helps a lot.

Intotheark, hey best wishes in your new banana-belt zone! No doubt it will bring its own set of rewards and challenges. If you have sweet cherries, they will definitely fall into the "reward" category next June or July!

RE: 2b or not 2b

i was thinking zone 6a like SouthCountryGuy said

Konrad,
it was a family matter, so there was no looking back
the new view helps...

RE: 2b or not 2b

RE: 2b or not 2b

intotheark, I still plead you to keep posting here. Will take some of the pressure off of me. You have no idea how hard it is being the only HOT guy on a cold forum! Two HOT people are better than one!

RE: 2b or not 2b

Nice view!


 o
RE: 2b or not 2b

Take care, I found your information good and practical. Drop in on the forums from time to time, I'm sure we'll still have questions!

And yes, nice view on the new property!
