[Total: 0   Average: 0/5]You must sign in to vote I FINALLY got to working on that corner of the “end” of the front yard garden and removing the remainder of that fallen cottonwood tree. And I got a whole lot more done so I’m happy to share that progress with you! I gave myself EVEN more to do, started 2 new projects (lol!) and so…go me! ha! Also, I keep saying the 3 sisters are going in here but I have since done more research and thinking and I’m planting something different in this sandy soil, something that will love how sandy this corner of the yard is! More news on that this upcoming week! WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT THE ARCH IDEA!?!?!?!?! Blog: Facebook: Email: Pinterest: Twitter:

    I did a farming project some years ago with a gal who had a former feed lot – the entire lot was sand and aged manure – perfect for growing anything! But it required quite a bit of watering because the drainage was so good. Adding compost AND aged manure should give you a good workable healthy soil that will drain well but not over-drain. Hope that helps.

    Repurposing and reusing all of the things you have access to is just good! :-)

    Hi Elizabeth. I am not quite through your video yet, but I see some real possibilities for using 1) all of the cut branches and twigs, 2) giving you a fence AND a garden at the same time. If you are not familiar with hugelkultur – if is a method stacked garden base using all manner of debris. The idea of making a fence out of it is simple. Place posts opposite each other or staggered about 18" to 2+ feet apart, begin stacking debris in (see Picture) and compress and create a density of matter. Later on you can fill the tops with soil and grow in it. If you need more info message me – I will reference this on your FB post.

    That wire fence looks like Goat Fencing, keeps the horns from being caught in the fencing.

    Looks like you have alot of room for a permaculture garden. How many acres do you have, Elizabeth?
