I'm excited to be able to visit Tennessee next week, Oct 6-14. Each state that I am able to visit, gives me an opportunity to understand the climate and terrain everyone gardens in. Last October I was able to meet AtlantaMarie and Yolos in Georgia.

A beautiful state to tour, especially at this time of the year! We have spent a lot of time traveling throughout Tennessee with the RV, and always enjoyed it.

In Nashville area, we visited this site.  Interesting and educational and good value for the dollar.  

And, then I saw this garden area and got home sick.  lol! I pictured using the planting square on the outside circular beds and flowers in the middle with some herbs, or corn blocks or . . . .

We toured the Museum of Appalachia Sunday and the Smoky Mountains today. Drove by so many antique stores on I-321. I hope to visit one tomorrow and the older district housing around Fort Sanders Medical Center. Then off to Chattanooga.

Do you have pictures of the Smoky Mountains?  Back around 1970-71, I visited Gatlinberg.

You were right in my backyard!  The MoA does an "anvil shoot" on Independence Day and it's a sight to see! But bring your hearing protection, LOL

I lived in Nashville for 6 years, in the mid-late 80s. Worked at Vandy.  I visit also set every few months, because my oldest son lives there now!  And one of my friends that I worked with still lives there—great town.

There appears to be 2 different type of vines in Tennessee that just cover bushes and trees.  Does anyone know what they are? Sanderson Touring Tennessee  Vines_10

The first one is Kudzu, and the second one is English Ivy.  When I lived in south Georgia, that Kudzu was everywhere, including invading out hay fields.

Talk about invasive! Where it's bad it makes the trees look like something out of a scary movie. Green leafy monsters waiting for someone to innocently walk by!

Kudzu, the vine that ate the south!

From The Nature Conservancy:

"Known as “mile-a-minute” and “the vine that ate the South,” this creeping, climbing perennial vine terrorizes native plants all over the southeastern United States and is making its way into the Midwest, Northeast and even Oregon.


Kudzu—or kuzu (クズ)—is native to Japan and southeast China. It was first introduced to the United States during the Philadelphia Centennial Exposition in 1876 where it was touted as a great ornamental plant for its sweet-smelling blooms and sturdy vines.


From the 1930s through the 1950s, the Soil Conservation Service promoted it as a great tool for soil erosion control and was planted in abundance throughout the south. Little did we know that kudzu is quite a killer, overtaking and growing over anything in its path.


Kudzu grows out of control quickly, spreading through runners (stems that root at the tip when in contact with moist soil), rhizomes and by vines that root at the nodes to form new plants.


Once established, kudzu grows at a rate of one foot per day with mature vines as long as 100 feet."

And pretty much NO herbicide will kill it.  Only thing they've found that will reliably kill kudzu is having goats eat it down to the ground for 3 years in a row....

Yes, that is the Brown Marmorated Stink Bug, another invasive species from Asia.  They are especially pesty this time of the year as they try to get into buildings to hibernate for the winter. These things love to chew holes in vegetables and fruit, including winter squash.



"Agricultural Research Service (ARS) scientists are currently studying Trissolcus japonicus, commonly known as the samurai wasp, to see if this parasitoid wasp is the right biological control agent for reducing brown marmorated stink bug (Halyomorpha halys) (BMSB) populations outside of Asia."

Old Stone Fort National Park outside Manchester, TN.  Almost missed this gem on our way back the Nashville to fly home tomorrow.  There are Indian Mounds situated for the summer solstice plus a mill for making gun powder for the Confederacy.  The Union destroyed it.

The one thing I didn't see much of were home gardens.  I only saw 2 because homes aren't fenced with 6' fences like CA.

At the Old Stone Fort SP, the trails were rooty and rocky.  Didn't stop Sanderson, even if there is an undignified photo. Embarassed
