Hello, I'm Tessa. Feel free to look around and comment on anything you like. And for those of you needing some instant input- here are the facts.
My Climate- for the curious.
Location:Redmond, OR- High desert
USDA Zone:5 (in most of my yard) Sunset Zone:1 or 2 Climate:Sun, sun, snow (with sun!) Cold winters, nice summers Last frost:It can dip below freezing any time of year, but I've set my last frost to June 1st for my yard Garden Size:Just over 1/3 acre and an adjacent lot that is 1/4 acre that we can use. I'm keeping it small for now. Gardener:Certified Master Gardener and beginning garden coach- aspiring microfarmer! Started blogging:May 2008
Note:I moved from a temperate climate, zone 8 to a much ccccolder climate, zone 5- things have been interesting around here and I continue to test varieties to see what works and what people like. I have put up a small high tunnel and any extras I have go to local produce stores- I have hopes of building a much larger high tunnel to supply the food banks in my area. I'm offering my services this year (2013) as a garden coach- Let me help you do what I do!
