If you want some intresting reading on planting by the signs grab yourself a set of the "Foxfire" books. (Library sure beats buying)
They have a whole boatload of info from the oldtimers in your area if I'm not mistaken. Besides being a good source of info, they are a goooood read.

I'll be darned, someone else obviously has read these as well. I have the first six volumes; I collected them as a teenager and they are still deemed "worthy" enough to make my bookshelf.

I have them in my bookcase. My SIL taught in the school where they Foxfire books were written. I believe that is in the north east corner of Georgia. Beautiful place.

My wife's aunt wanted to read mine, I made sure I got this one back before I gave her the next one. And she's real reliable!

I know whatha mean. I have never lent these out, and I never will either. Too many times I failed to get even bad books back from good people!
