I also want a place where I can have some privacy & quietness.

Chris, I second Randall's desire for you to be able to move to a better place some day, and I like that you plant things despite the less than desirable conditions.

I live in a city of 60 thousand people.  Some days there is smog from the fertilizer plant outside of town, but usually there is enough wind to keep the air reasonable clean.

Still, I want to move to a warmer place, but mostly a place where I can have some land to garden.

That sounds like very bad smog, Randall. Good for you that you live in a clean area now!

Good for you, Chris. I spent 7 years in smoggy So. Calif., back when there were no "controls". I remember the burning eyes, persistant cough, and foul odor. I moved back to Indiana--away from any cities. Sorry you can't do the same. Some day, perhaps.

Randall, I must be stupid to make a vegetable garden twelve metres above a polluted street - but I'll do it anyway. There's one of those test points down in the street and the outcome for fine dust and other emissions are above the European norm. Why do I bother? I can't help myself - plants clean the air and only in this way can I prove to myself that I don't want to be part of the polluting community. Living here will probably take 13 months out of my life expectancy, I read somewhere, but that can't be helped either: I need a bag of money before I can move and besides, our two patients live near here. So today, Saturday, I'm going to dig and plant some more.

How was your day in the garden, Joan?

Each one of your messages is an inspiration to me that I greatly need today. I'm emotionally down for some reason, but I am headed for the garden now and expect to come inside full of enthusiasm and calm. Write to you later.

Chris, I've always maintained that if you're going to grow something, it might as well be edible. Herbs are great to grow in containers. Zucchini sounds interesting. The same theory is true for trees. Fruit and nut trees gives one blossoms (and bees) and delicious fruit--more bang for your buck!

Sounds like you're going to have a nice garden Chris.  I'm also looking forward to pictures of it.

The new containers for my roof garden arrived! It's a mess while I transfer earth and compost to the new containers and clear out the broken old stuff, but it's beginning to look good. The surviving perennials get replanted and I even planted courgette seedlings - zucchini. Can't wat to see what happens!
