Just to make sure... most people would consider KY the upper south right?? I wonder sometimes.. The black hole of KY Icon_scratch I just moved here last year and feel like Alice down the rabbit hole. Too north for the south, too south for the north, too east for the midwest, and too west for the mid atlantic.

Good growing area though, last year I had tomatoes, beans, peppers, cucumber, squash, and melon..... all on my compost pile The black hole of KY Icon_eek . Can't wait to see what the garden produces. The black hole of KY Icon_smile

I'm right there with ya...I'm in West Virginia. Neither north nor south. I'm in the eastern mountains of WV so our growing season is shorter. This February has been record breaking as far as snow goes for us. I haven't seen my SFG for a long time, and until today they were just bumps in the snow. Much to my amazement, the shallots I planted last Fall have survived and are looking very healthy. Can't wait to plant my lettuces!

The black hole of KY Empty Is NC upper south or mid-atlantic?

Post  paynjk7 3/7/2010, 3:18 pm

If KY is upper south, then is NC? Just trying to figure out where I should be. We are having our first warm weekend here and I got out and planted sugar snaps today! Also enjoying my indoor lettuce, eggplant, chard, and tons of flower sprouts. Sorry to all of you still covered in snow...spring is coming soon! Jen

I don't think NC is Upper South, except for maybe the Blue Ridge area. Here's the best place to find your zone: http://www.garden.org/zipzone/

Once you enter your zip code and it gives you the result page with your Zone #, click on the link for the Regional report and it will tell you which one you're in.

The black hole of KY Empty Upper South

Post  ander217 3/16/2010, 9:54 am

Patti,

Thanks so much for posting the address for garden.org zipzone. I checked, and my area of Missouri is definitely Upper South. The region for Upper South appears to begin around Wichita Falls, TX, and moves slightly northeastward, taking in Oklahoma City and most of central Oklahoma, extreme southern MO, most of the north half of Arkansas (Little Rock is just below the line in the Mid-South region), the southern edges of Illinois, Indiana, and Ohio, the entire state of Kentucky, northwestern TN (Nashville is just below the line), the entire state of West Virginia, and western and northern Virginia.

I always thought we were Mid-South here. Most maps I've seen list our growing area as 7, but this one says we are 6b.

Live and learn!

Curious Kentuckians.... we are the melting pot of the US, the crossroads of America (sorry IN).

Good ole Abe knew it....

I'm having good luck with the garden this year... and yes my compost heap is sprouting some nice veggies too!

The black hole of KY Empty compost veggies

Post  ander217 4/9/2010, 2:57 pm

Our daughter in Austin, TX emailed me a photo yesterday to ask if I could identify the plants growing on top of her compost pile.

She has the nicest crop of potatoes sprouted there. Now she doesn't know whether to use the compost or leave it alone and let her potatoes grow. They are big enough to begin blooming soon, so I suggested she wait another month or two at least until she can scrabble out a few new potatoes. Ours here, so carefully planted in our row-style garden, are only about four inches tall and the moles are wreaking havoc with them. (Actually, it's the dogs digging for the moles that are doing the wreaking, wrecking, whatever.)

I'll be so glad when we can convert more of the garden to SFG.
