A Glimpse Into an Urbangarden

chicken coop, Compost Pile, garden

Intro for those new, this is the garden we started a year and a couple months ago. We had an old coop, now we got a new one, had no walls now we do have walls, soils slightly better and growing as the compost is fattening. Check out all the worms in my compost, I use red wigglers. Stay tuned it’s going to get real country.


Below is my tomato planter I have a variety of tomatoes. Behind them is a stump planter with wave petunias. Dragged the stump from a river and it was hollowed. 


My chickens pictured below are very very good to me, I get 2 eggs a day…change their water and feed them very often. 

Get them and keep them happy and they will provide for you.


Fresh cilantro enjoyed last night for dinner, the first yeild of this years garden. Very very good.


Borage flowers that have yet to bloom very early, the flowers attract many bees and can be eaten as well. Many places use as a garnish.

The garden becomes peaceful when dusk rolls in, nice place to enjoy a good book, or relax with the birds.


Green beans seem to be growing well after getting in too early this year. 


This is my compost pile. The key to good soil, as mentioned earlier, is red wigglers in the pile actively feasting on all the good scraps.


The goal is to grow what you eat, grow more than you can eat and give to those who you love.

Grapevines, cilantro, and compost!

Compost Pile, garden

I bought these grape vines 2-3 years ago and put them at my parents. Since the vines haven’t really taken off yet they’ve been moved and battered. Finally I think I’ve found a spot they’ll do good!

They are growing up my wood made structure im sure there’s a name for it but for now we’ll call it a topiary. 

Look at my compost pile tearing it up!!! Just a hustling through my shreds of scrap and forming Rich fertile soil!!!


And my cilantro and just kicking in gear! We’ve had a few storms and the thunder and lightning really treated them right! They’re kicking it out! 

Please enjoy 

Video: Red Wiggler Worms working in a Compost Pile

Hey ever since I started “Lenny’s Worm Farm” ive always been interested in the ways worms play a vital role in gardening. When I started this compost pile a year ago I knew it needed red wigglers, a breed of worm known for its ability to eat and munch on all the good scraps and produce worm castings. I bought 200 and released them hoping for a good turnout. and now I can say I think its happening there are tons of worms in my pile. Oh they just love me ❤

please enjoy this brief video:

Thanks

It’s finally time, I brought my plants out from the indoor closet set up I crafted together. and let them into the environment. I wish I had eased them into it because I fear the cold nights my stress them out a little bit. I also wish I had invested in some topsoil + cow manure to fertilize before planting. Anyways it is what it is you live you learn.

Keep it real all.

The coop is built with 4X4’s and then some scrap 2X6’s and scrap 2X3’s. all the walls are scraps and pieces ive accumilated along the road and from other jobs. so far the paint seems nice but im going to put shingle roof on it soon.

Thanks
