"Thanks Mary! We are big fans of wood ash and also using biochar which we make by damping down our wood burning fireplace last thing at night and then collecting the half-burnt coals in the morning Also add both to compost works well!!"

Bacteria And Viruses In Rain And The Atmosphere

On the one hand, this makes tunnel tents and my greenhouse more interesting for tomatoes. the other hand, what happens to a few generations of plants no longer exposed to daily doses of viruses and bacteria?  I'm betting their resistance to infection declines as it receives fewer challenges.I'd want to make sure my seeds come from plants grown exposed to the rain and dustfall. See More

Trellis started as a group of gardening enthusiasts visiting each others vegetable gardens for inspiration and exchanging ideas. Our excitement for what we could learn from each other developed into a community forum where all could come and share and grow from each others experiences.

Each 3rd Saturday of the month, we meet to share and discuss a topic of vegetable gardening relevant to the season and this area. Vegetable gardening in western Washington and certainly in the Snoqualmie Valley area is unique, due to soil conditions, moisture, cooler temperatures, and various other factors. Together we can learn and teach each other from our own experiences and knowledge.

Our group includes a wide range of expertise from those with 15+ years of gardening experience to first time gardeners. We welcome everyone into our monthly discussion forums. It is a great place to share resources and experience for vegetable gardening in the Snoqualmie Valley area.
