I love those flowing borders. If the hills face south, that might help with light and warmth. Their raised beds are high, so warmer, and which is more accessible for less agile gardeners, very nice.

I line the insides of my wooden raised beds using saved dog food bags and chicken feed bags. Those are a very durable woven plastic. We also use them for tarps. im reusing some cinderblocks for new raised beds. Not sure they need the lining - might benefit if the cement raises the soil pH too much.

This is probably a great resource for Northern gardeners! Thanjs for posting!

The tree and shrub moving took a lot of planning and patience. Today I will dig a circle. Next day, dig a little deeper. Next day rest. Next day, slice under the root ball. Next day....

There is a good window of opportunity for moving shrubs and trees, and we are in it. I hope they survive and thrive in their new home.

Too much of these projects makes it a chore. Time to relax and renew and rest, as you say.

Soon... bare root trees msil order, and maybe start some seeds. No rush, there is plenty of time.

What's happening in your greenhouse?

Daniel, that is an amazing job you and Charlie completed! Your regalia adds to the charm. Hope you renew, refresh, and rest. You must feel quite proud of your projects completed. Your new kitchen is a cook's dream.

An ambitious project by Javan K. Bernakevitch of All Points Land Design and Permaculture BC, and Gord Hiebert of Element Eco-Design. They led a two and half day workshop/installation at Darfield Earthship Project.

"The most striking thing about the Condit Dam site today is the lack of evidence that the dam was ever there"   White Salmon Time Lapse.    "salmon had already started spawning above and below the former dam site before crews had even finished removing the last of the concrete" and tree planting in the former lake bed is discussed.

Gian Earthworms on remote Scottish Island.   more than a foot long.  Apparently, they grow larger due to a lack of predators.  Our chickens would make a meal of them in no time!

Daniel, I LOVE IT!  You and the dog. Wonderful! Congrats on getting the job(s) done. Well done.

The last one is in the ground.

At least they weren't this size - lilac gardens about 10 miles from here -

We also moved a Ginkgo biloba tree that I had in my old front yard, a seedling I started some time back.

Now it's time to rest.  I need to get my energy back before going to work next week, wore out completely but happy with the conclusion of this project.

It appears the dam removal happened several years ago. It doesn't look like the hoped for results occured.

Did you get your lilac bushes planted, Daniel?

Spectacular Time Lapse Video of Historic Dam Removal

"For 98 years, the 125-foot high Condit Dam in southeastern Washington State held back the White Salmon River, creating a serene lake, but choking off the waterway to salmon. Wednesday, in an historic effort, the dam was dramatically breached, and ecologists hope the increased flow of water will restore the waterway to fish and other aquatic organisms, as well as the birds and mammals that rely on them."

Did you see how much sediment came out the bottom of that dam? I hope trees and grasses get planted all along the bank in an attempt to stop that lovely stuff from running off into the ocean.

Paraphrasing Loren, cream in milk and feces in water rise to the top. Skim the cream off to make butter, skim the feces off to make fertilizer. Both have value even as one smells so much better than the other.
