Re: made it to Missouri

Yep- we have found the farmers markets. One runs all year, but more crafts and baked goods at this time of the year. Â

I agree that Hyvee is an excellent supermarket - go there on a regular basis here in Quincy, IL. But, keep your ear to the ground for local farmers and farmers markets. I have two farmers that let me know what they have, weekly, by e-mail, and there are probably CSAs in your area you could join as well.
Enjoy your new environment, and best wishes in your new job!

LOL- Âlove ur solution to the "little house" Â: )
On other good news, today we found a good grocery store (HyVee)- we had been going to like 3 different places to find what we needed, and Target of all places had the best berries in the city. Now I can go to just one giant beautiful store that even has some organic produce : )

AND I am finally starting my new job on Monday. Yeah!

Since i'm renting, I don't think I'll be building raised beds, but I did bring a bunch of large pots with me that I'm going to plant tomatoes etc in.

I use raised beds here where the clay is particularly bad. Âalso over the spot where the "little house" used to be. Âthis house didn't have indoor plumbing until WWII. Âthanks FDR!!

Agree with the raised beds. You can change to whatever the plants need. I love raised beds

Congrats on the move. Sounds like you're in for some fun times with the garden. I've come to believe that unless you have 40 acres and a mule, raised beds are the way to go, if only because you can make your soil what you want it to be and you don't have to worry about chasing it down the street in the spring rains. Raised beds also lend themselves to intensive, square-foot plantings. It's surprising what you can grow in a couple of 4X12-foot raised beds.

Hi all-
For those who knew of our impending move, we did make it to Missouri. Long car ride, one car sick cat, but otherwise an uneventful and smooth trip. Weather he hasn't been too bad yet (I'm grateful for that), and just trying to get acclimated to a new place.
Found a list of garden centers this evening, and realized that Baker Seeds is only an hour away! Âwoohoo!
The yard here seems to be a light layer of soil (like maybe 3 inches) covering a giant rock pile. So, not sure what is going to grow, but there is always pots.
Hope everyone is staying warm and enjoying some holiday time,
