Brief description of my location/climate:

3.1 acres of scrub woods and steep southwest slopes down to a swampy front yard. avg 45-60"/yr. precipitation. First frost: September 25. Last frost: April 10. Avg. low in winter is 22 degrees Fahrenheit, occasionally down to 0 or -2 to 3. Avg. high in summer is 82 degrees Fahrenheit, occasionally up to 103 to 104.


I joined this site July 6 '11, if I remember straight. I have been gardening all my life, and have experience in the southeastern Pennsylvanian climate. I have knowledge in lawn care, tree and shrub care, general landscaping, edibles, nursery, and indoor gardening, as well as other variable aspects of horticulture.

I also have a fairly good knowledge of basic biological concepts, and have fun with scientific experiments (well, I would, had I more time). I enjoy outdoor activities, when I can get around to them, and am an amateur dog trainer. I also have a rather nice knowledge of good sustainable agricultural practices and livestock raising and care. I haven't been into it for too long, but it's still an interest.

Feel free to drop me a note:

comment What vegetable/fruits plants will rabbits not eat?
@kevinsky Your last sentence was redundant... :). But actually, that would be an interesting study. I have no idea what goes on in their heads. James Jenkins from pets might know (rabbit expert).

Definitely an Opuntia species, still trying to find out which one.

comment Source for apple variety information
yeah, there isn't a comprehensive database like that for apples. Partly because even the levels in one variety can vary widely due to conditions.

comment why the leaves of my guava getting dry and dropping?
Please tell us how much you've been watering, how much light it's been getting, the mean high and low temps, and the humidity levels.
