I think you would be an amazing gardener Oakos. The trick to it is building a raised garden bed. A lot of areas don't have the best soil which means a lot of work, money and dedication to get the organic soil just right. It's best to just build a little wall area and throw some enriched store bought dirt in it!



Thank you Tweedle!

LOVELY! And yes to the raised beds... That is what we did for our organic vegetable gardens ..... Makes it so much easier to keep the soil balanced!

Thank you for sharing.

Go on...

Also, I'm imagining a follow-up post in which Colby instructs us how to trim around a 4 inch pipe.
Follow your tusks!

How right you are Sprite! Mmm, nothing better than organic veggies!

I understand Colby, sometimes you have to wait a few days for the bush to flush out and look normal again. I hope you didn't nick or nip your bush during the trimming process.

Thanks Duck! I have plenty of pics but I don't want to bog down the entire forum with my 2 billion gigs of plant pics lol.

Thanks Az and man I forgot that Drew did some blue collar comedy appearances.

Last spring/summer I made this little bad boy for my wife (and myself too)



We overplanted, better luck this year I hope!



Then in late summer I got to work on something my wife has wanted for a very long time.

From this:



To this:



To this [note the previous construct in the background :)]



Never underestimate the powers of a stubborn half Irish/Canadian man with a shovel and a level. I need a newer picture though with the firepit, chairs and tables. Next step is to run electricity there so we can display movies out at night.
