Hi ya'll.....I've been away too long. I've been so busy working on a couple of things. I'll be taking you all along as I complete them. Wow, do I have some fun stuff coming up! I'm trying to be an "ORGANIC GARDENER"! My new "Motto".....Reduce, Reuse, Recycle! This is what I completed today. I got these wood pallets from my neighbors!
I nailed them together and painted them this really cool green!
Here's to the beginning of composting.
Grass and kitchen scraps.
Isn't she beautiful!
Total cost = The cost of the paint.
This is my other compost bin that I purchased from Lowes.
Now it's time to divide each box into "Square Foot boxes". You plant more in each box this way. I'm reading Mel Bartholomew's Square Foot Gardening Book, it has everything there is to know about Squarefoot Gardening!! I hope my garden looks something like his! This is what's happening.... Recipe: Bamboo sticks (last longer than using lattice and won't rot as fast) Galvanized poultry net staples Ruler Hammer Cable Plastic Ties
I measured each to 12 inches
and hammered them in.
Then, I used the cable plastic ties to tie them together.
For the longer beds, I used the Cable ties to put two pieces together to extend them.
