garden

Things are going swell I truly believe Summer’s here now, my girl loves sand baths in the summers sun. Her and I have been plugging away! Pay days this week so I’m hoping to get a lot more plants installed. 

One of my followers reccomended reaching out to a tree service company for free mulch. It just so happens my neighbor owns a company hat does that. He’s always hauling a big chipper with him. I went to chat with him yesterday and he said some time this week or next hes going to give me a whole trailer full! It’s not the decrotive mulch with dyes and what not. It’s the natural! I’m so hype once I get that spread you all just wait!

Pictured above is my herb box, cilantro and basil doing good! Parsley is in there somewhere too. I didn’t know this but cilantro will begin to flower and seed and the seeds are actually a different spice. The seeds are called coriander, I had no idea hahahah!! Please share anything you think of as I’m new to this whole thing too!
Please enjoy stay swift and be easy baby.

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.

DIY Custom Garden Patio-Path

Summer 2015

Needing some more patio space out side, i turned to my chunks of concrete i found buried earlier this year. first i laid them out and adjusted and got them how i wanted. Then i spread mortar powder all through them with a broom. Prolly would advise you mix it properly.
