    Marlas, I'm too tired to look up Gerrardstown right now, but if you're in the panhandle of WV we can't be more than an hour apart. I'm in the very southern tip of Allegheny County, PA.

    Good morning (a day later - but that's the way it goes ... rain and dial-up :surrender:)

    The edible landscape is very cool :D and yummy! We have been working on that for 15 years now. Some things worked, some did not ... like the blueberries ...:cry:

    Was just telling DH how we could turn our front yard into an edible landscape...my problem? The neighbor's dogs who love to "mark" everything. Ok, so get a fence or hotwire...hotwire when SHTF with no power? No can do. Fence? Until I find some for free, I'm out. *sigh*

    Our electric fence charger is solar powered. It works great. They cost more than the other type but you don't have plug them in so they're very portable and maintenance free. Our neighbor uses one to keep his buffalo in the pasture.

    ;) of course, as soon as I read that I said "well duh"....so did the DH...guess the conversation wasn't over when I typed it, :eek: :ignore: so just ignore my moment of being a total airhead.
