Welcome to TheHoopers.Org
This is my plot of clay on the web. The site is primarily for my own and my family's amusement. If there is something here you can make use of, please feel free to enjoy. Otherwise stand back while the dirt flies and the compost happens.
If ever there was a non-profit organization, this is it!

There are few things I enjoy more than scratching around in the dirt and seeing something grow from it. While I'm not very good at gardening, I have had some minor successes turning this terrible clay soil into something more than a carrier for weeds.
YET ANOTHER BANDWIDTH WASTING WEBCAM|
The webcam shows the current view in the backyard and faces east. The Hooper's webcam is in St. Albans, WV.
And if you liked watching ivy grow, our next cam will feature paint drying! Nothing fancy here... if you want an updated picture, click RELOAD or REFRESH on your browser.
You'll pull a new image whenever the page is loaded, 24/7.

As the resident geek at a local TV station, gardening lets me relax and totally forget about work-life. This site lets me keep a record of what I've done in the garden. The yard changes rapidly and usually within any given 3 months time I've forgotten what a garden bed looked like before I've been digging, planting or enjoying the changing seasons.
