I have a list of links along the sidebar of this site promoting other gardening sites I find useful.
I’ve made a few additions lately, including one I had overlooked in the transition from FloridaSurvivalGardener.com to this site last year.
That site, which every plant forager and/or Tennessee gardener should know, is the Southern Forager blog. I’m friends with Dr. Mom – I even got my picture taken with her when she came through Florida and visited my food forest some time back:
Though she’s prettier than I am, I obviously have excellent fashion sense which more than makes up for my face.
Another site I just added is EthnoHerbalist, a project created by Dr. Kevin Curran. He contacted me and we traded links after he found my article on growing turmeric.
Along with those, I had to plug William at Permaculture Apprentice and the chicken king, Justin Rhodes, at Abundant Permaculture.
If there’s a good site that needs some love and you think it’s worth adding, let me know in the comments and I’ll consider sending a link their way. I find new and exciting writers all the time – and many of you have connections that reach further than mine.
Merriwether has a great sense of humor and lots of good data for people in Texas- http://www.foragingtexas.com/
This is a good one, too – thank you.
And Steven at Skillcult is into all kinds of cool stuff- I got some landraced Bulgarian giant leeks from him this Spring, and some walking onions awhile back, plus he’s into grafting and apple breeding – (and who wouldn’t love a guy who can show you how to make slaked lime from start to finish???)
Steven is the man – we’re friends.
Funny you should ask Dave, I recently found a farm in South Carolina that specializes in cold hardy citrus that I’ve been meaning to tell you about. I’ve ordered 2 Ichang Lemon seedlings. The web site is rudimentary and orders are by phone or email. When I called I got through right away and placed my order, I’ll let you know when I get my order what I think. Heres’s the link;
Also when poking around his site I found a link to a really interesting nursery in Aiken, SC that only ships in the fall, cool stuff though;
Take care, Nathan
I’ve bought from Woodlanders before – they have some great stuff.

This is my go to page for edible gingers.
I thought it may be useful for growers in cooler climates, as it provides the low temperature for many species.
