“It is a capital mistake to theorize before you have all the evidence. It biases the judgment.” – Sherlock Holmes Quote – A Study in Scarlet
A few things about my garden
USDA Hardiness Zone: 7a (This means the minimum temperature is between 0 – 5 F)
Province: Piedmont Plateau bordering the Coastal Plain known as the Fall Zone
The Coastal Plain Province is underlain by a wedge of unconsolidated sediments including gravel, sand, silt, and clay, which overlaps the rocks of the eastern Piedmont along an irregular line of contact known as the Fall Zone. Eastward, this wedge of sediments thickens to more than 8,000 feet at the Atlantic coast line. Beyond this line is the Atlantic Continental Shelf Province, the submerged continuation of the Coastal Plain, which extends eastward for at least another 75 miles where the sediments attain a maximum thickness of about 40,000 feet.- Excerpt from Maryland Geological Survey
The Chesapeake Bay Watershed – This is the main area of drainage into the Chesapeake Bay. My garden is a part of it.
