My name is Cara and I live in North Carolina (coastal region).

I am new to NC, as I moved here in August of 06 after living my entire 31 years in Tucson, Arizona.

I am somewhat experienced at gardening, but it seems that the hobby is a whole different animal in NC!

In AZ, you basically make the soil you want and adapt for sun (full sun plants often turn to shriveled crispy-critters in full desert sun).

Here, however, I have all sorts of pests, soil types, shade/sun issues as well as a plethora of flowering plants and shurbs that make up the landscape of my 2 acre spread.

I am very interested in starting a vegetable garden, but I seem to have missed the regular planting season for summer plants. I will have to start this undertaking in the fall.

But for now, I have a few things in containers and they seem to be doing well.

I look forward to meeting new people here and to everyone's kind advice and suggestions!
