I've returned to the mountains of NC after many years and I'm immersing myself in gardening. I just completed building a house in the middle of the woods and I want my yard to be only a slightly more cultivated version of the acres of woods around me. Unfortunately I have fill dirt near the house so that is my first concern. I've already found so much great information on your website. I look forward to many hours of fun reading and application of what I learn! Glad I found you!
@jeanhumphrey1 I'm glad to see you here on the forum. I'm just a ways down the road in Knoxville, Tennessee, and I also have a tiny cabin in Qualla, a hop, skip and a jump from Cherokee, N.C.
I don't garden there, just here, but I sure enjoy the natural spaces and the wild mushrooms, not to mention Barber's Orchard in Sylva.
I hope we can all enjoy the transformation of your space together. I know that fill dirt might be intimidating you, but hang tough! It can be mastered.
@rosekennedy Thanks for the words of encouragement. We're excited and realistic at the same time. I love a project!
