Re: Simple and Effective, but not Elegant.

This has the ol wheels turning once again. I'm thinking one could have a nice composting keyhole bed without all of the work of building up a bed around the composting hole.

Re: Simple and Effective, but not Elegant.

Awesome! I need to know more about this. Do you use only dried grasses? What else goes in the mix? Would you be so kind as to post more pics? Have you grown other plants this way?

Thanks!

I'm not really sure. We had temps in the single digits, snow, and ground that was frozen for a few days.

Re: Variegated Musa "Florida"

My (...er...Harvey's) FV Made it through our icy Winter, and is putting on it's third leaf. I dug it up last year, and saw several pups, but only one popped up so far.

Re: A Place To Vent

Also, the armadillos here which were like small VW beetles are now like VW buses complete with roto-tillers in the front, and plows in the rear.

solar still/solar distiller for pure water

Have any of you built one of these? I've been collecting rain water for years, but we've been in serious drought since early last year. It would be nice to have pure top off water on demand.

Re: Need help, whats wrong with my GBOP

Can you believe that I found a leaf on mine today after severe freezes and snow?!?! I'm sure it'll never get very large outdoors, but am still amazed at it's survival and plan to leave it out there.
