The group is still open for operation, but has been inactive for
awhile, hopefully because of winter?
It is a young group and I have not spent much time trying to find new
members. Since spring seems to be finally
here, I will be working on promoting the group in the coming weeks.
Please feel free to invite anyone you know who might like to
It was the you mentioned oregano site that first inspired me to start
the group. I have small round raised area that used to be the base of
a grain silo. We now use it as an unpaved "patio". I thought that area
would be ideal an oregano lawn. Last year I planted seeds but
I think it was too late in the year. Not a one of them germinated.
I had actually mixed quite a few different varieties, just to test out
the different plants. I had chamomile in there, (a few of those did
grow, hopefully they'll come back
this year), thyme, Johnny jump ups and alyssum. (Yes, Edible!) I guess
its possible that some of the seeds will germinate this spring... but
I'm going to reseed this year, anyway.
What part of the country are you in, Point Place?
Hut on the Hill Homestead

Where do you live? (what zone, and rain fall amounts etc.)
What in particular are you planning on doing? (hedges, schrubs,spring
flowering tree, etc.)
We live in the Arkansas Ozarks.

I'm really just getting into all this. I've gardened for years. But,
never much idea before of eating my flowers. People change.
We have postage stamp sized yards, so what you see, needs to be put to
good use. Plus, has to be neat enough, not to have the city come out
and fine ya.
Here for instance, the city took all our trees out, along the street.
Yes, they were in sad shape, but what they planted to replace them, we
need to take care of. Our water, our time, our money. So, my thoughts
got to thinking...why did they not plant useful trees. Not just for
shade, but for food. Fruit trees. (They removed the maples, and put in
ornamental pear, I believe they called them. They want all the trees
to match that line the streets.)
They are doubling our water rates here. So, I am getting ready to use
rain barrels with laid out drip irrigation hoses. But, need to have
what I want where, so I can put down the hoses. (If we have a dry
summer, like they are prediciting, I'm screwed on that idea.)
I also want to do some "lasagna gardening", mixed in with recycling
ideas at the same time.
I'd like to beable to plan veggies and all, mixed in with the edible
landscape, and not have the city called out to fine me. Bottom line,
it has to look nice, really nice. I can get away with alot in the
backyard, but not so much in the front. And when you don't have much
room...every inch counts.
Maybe I joined the wrong group, I have no idea. But, I'm sure I'll
pick up some good ideas along the way.
Anyone know of a site, or a list where I can get a idea of edible
Can whatever be dried, saved somehow for later use.
Ones that come back every year (a one time investment.)
Simple and easy care.
What is a flower to me, is a weed in the neighbors yard, if it spreads
