Using Bone Ashes in the Garden. 12.9.18
Just want to share with you the pictures of Laura's new terraces designed and created by Zac, my newest great-granddaughter's daddy. He cut the timbers, limbed and barked them and installed them.
April 2014, Zac carved a slope into terraces.
Sept 2014, Zac finished buiding the terraces
Seems a good dog, Barbara! I love animals - and people - with a will of their own.
Sorry about your mosquito hell Randy. I hate those buggers! I've been on top of hills before where there was no standing water that I could detect for a mile, and still been covered with them the instant I stopped moving. Uggg!
I could put-up with all the critters eating my garden in the country, but not mosquitoes! That's why if I move to a warmer climate, it will be to another dry one.
Not awake yet, I mean Joan - not Ruth.
Ruth, I adopted Lily in late June at 7 lbs. thinking she was a maltese mix and 6 mos. old.. I quickly learned she was NOT maltese, but a 4 mo. old Chinese Crested Powder Puff mix - the mix being who knows what but her behavior indicates Jack Russell Terrier. She is now 15.2 lbs and a very stubborn, feisty, and lovable piece of work! Chews on my plants, digs holes, caught and killed a cowbird, has left her "mark" on door frames, chairs, bookcase, recliner, cell phone charger, and probably other things I don't even know about. Rescue dogs are the Best!
Oh, yes. I forgot about grass! A tiller is a huge time and aching back saver on grass!
Barbara, good luck with the new tiller. Even with a more powerful tiller, turning sod is difficult. Don't hurt your back.
My potatoes are the largest I've ever had. A rainy summer made the difference. Surprisingly, my onions were not so big. A major drawback to all the rain is the mosquito population. I have to take a bath in "Off" before entering the yard and garden. I have no standing water around--must be the farm fields.
Spud, I don't have a clue as I just discovered the process about a month ago via online site. You have a point and I'll definitely check into it.
I just couldn't face the idea of having to dig up all the grass for planting beds, etc. without a tiller. Decided it was a good investment.
Barbara, glad you're getting a tiller. Saves a lot of work.
How do you harvest the potatoes in the tower. Do you harvest them all at once, or can you tear into the cardboard to get baby ones?
