for up to date pictures. Here some examples of some of the different things I’m into.
The seldom seen overflow for the wicking bed on this townhouse deck. I was filling up the reservoir prior to a camping trip, and my son, who was 2 at the time, took the elbow threw it in the long grass somewhere. I’m not sure if we ever got it back……
Replaced the birch stump on the left with a small edible garden. A flowering raspberry in the middle. A few geraniums for the pollinators and beneficial insects, and two kinds of flowering thyme. The gas line for the house runs directly under this stump so rather than grinding it, I cut it down below grade as much as I could and built this garden, Looking forward to seeing it fill out over time.
Wooden Worm Compost Bins, (Migration technique)
The new compost bin. Made from up cycled pallets and some salvaged material. (and some new parts). The design is known as a migration style worm bin. It allows the worms to be fed on either side of a screen. Feeding on only one side encourages the worms to “migrate” to one side. Leaving the other side of the screen relatively worm free for harvesting the finished compost.

I didn’t end up using the “newer” 6×6 on the right. The are repurposed as well, but looked too new.
Filled the inside with a Montana Rainbow rock mix.
This will make getting the pooch out for a walk in the winter a little easier. No slip and slide.
