Trimmed and weed free...notice that the top is deeper than the bottom. That is because it was dug completely under ground with the lay of the land then rocked.
These are all around the edging where the old wooden frame has rotted. I do believe I can reuse these with some miracle worker like WD-40 and frame for doors...if I want. Don't know yet. Playing it by ear.
Sweet Hubby brings me a scoop full of white sand to mix with the compacted soil in the bottom. Then for the next layer of farm gold...horse, cow and chicken poop all mixed nicely. Add some green compost, stir again and add water. Will check on the "heat" (composting items will raise the temperature) of the mix if not too hot should be able to add worms shortly.
With doors it can double as a cold frame. Without it can be a composted wormy heaven.
Beginning the dampening and mixing process....
forgetting and leaving the water on!!!!!
Since this is beach front property
tiny neighbors are already moving in.
