So my display farm was fully functional and sustainable. However, it looked bland and normal. So I was asked to “make it prettier”. Now like most guys, this is not my strongest area. Luckily, when I was younger, I had my own landscape company. This means it is a nice trip to the store with the BG card. The pic to the right is 400 lb of stone, rocks, and other necessities.
I made a nice patio type arrangement. I used the materials to design something that would look right at place in any backyard. I then used Mr Stackey pots here in green. I spiraled the herbs up the pots and used wildflower seeds to add some color to it. Obviously these plants need to grow into their spaces. I hope to post more pictures as they grow.
Part 2: I Hate Dirt
So rather than drag on and on about the same small garden area, I give you a two part blog. So the big pile of dirt on the left is…well it is a big pile of dirt obviously. This is the dirt I have to shovel into each of the 16 of the 4 foot by 4 foot boxes. Just to remind all of you, it is over 90 degrees out and humidity is around 100%. It is not very fun to shovel dirt. The picture on the right is the completed version of 3 of those boxes. I decided that was enough for the day as I had already planted many other things today. The important thing is I made progress and I didn’t die of heat stroke. Next step is to keep working on these boxes until I am done. I hope to talk someone into assisting me soon. Well that is all for now. I like keeping these short so that I don’t bore everyone too much talking about dirt and plants.
