Tennessee mountains. In addition to growing all kinds of container

As farmers, we have learned to make use of every opportunity to work
indoors when the weather is wild outside. I wish you could see my house
this weekend! At the moment, the guys are spending the weekend

work. They bring load after load up to the basement back door, and work
from that load. The basement floor is covered with plastic, and they
get busy splitting. My job? Well, since I can kill a silk plant with
