  1. Thanks so much for the tip. I’m so glad you found our little neighbor hood. I love comments, ideas and input. Plus, I can often be found in the Meebo IM to the right if you’d like a chat.

  2. I’m just starting out in “urban homesteading.” I love making compost and working with soil. Although to me it sounds crazy and the people at the garden center and others are somewhat incredulous, for growing things in pots what is working very well for me is a 1-1-1 mix of top soil from the local garden store (not sure where they get it, but they scoop it up for me with a front end loader), sand and compost (sometimes from St. Augustine grass clipping sometimes from leaves–mostly oak).

    Glad I stumbles onto you blog!
