I'm finally back! This is Cappy. Shortly after Mel's passing I tried to log on here and the forum didn't work so I figured it had ended with him. I kinda put yall out of my mind till now. We are busily planting and working on our garden boxes and yard and I thought of yall my first square foot box is now in need of replacing. It is 18 years old now. It is going from 4x4 to 4x6 to match the bods we built beside it. We look for wards to being back and sharing with yall. Thanks so much for the help.

Thanks guys, it's great to be back. Today is a down day yesterday we harvested cleaned and put up our green onions put 20-qt bags in the freezer. We also planted a strawberry box with some special zone 10 rated berries we have tried and failed at strawberrys several times but have high hopes for this new heat resistant variety I will keep yall posted and of course try to offer advice as I can, We still blog and take pictures and still have our you tube channel so we have lots of stuff to draw from. feel free to ask away of course. We have taken the best of Mel's methods and adapted tehm a lil for our soggy climate and still love gardening and playing in our yard
Great to hear from you Cappy.

What variety of strawberries are you planting. I think next year I will put in a strawberry bed. This year I only planted 2 strawberries to just see how they would do. The variety was Everbearing. Both Bonnies and Pikes were selling this variety so I thought I would try it.

over the years we have tried lots of varieties including some sold locally here but none of them were ever rated for below zone 8 I stumbled across these in Gurneys catalog.They are Gurneys Whopper variety and teh only ones we have ever found rated down to zone 10

I missed your bon fires on the levees. Which, speaking of levees, I got to see some up close on my traveling vacation. New Madrid and New Orleans.
It just so happens we went to the bon fires this year. When you were in New orleans you were only a half hour or so from our lil house in the country. We would have loved meeting ya.
Missed y’all! Glad you’re back!
