1,800$ is how much one of those bulldozers cost for 4 hours in my home town.
Your garden is amazing! Love you my Brpther

I'm old and in pain and too much IQ drives a person insane.
To low IQers smart is crazy insanity means doing something over and over and expecting different result what I want to know is who put that definition to that word? We have to do things over and over and expect different results because nothing stays the same forever things change sh*t happens people part

Very nice work! I wish I had the space for all that.

talk to you neighbors.... borrow space for food.... you might be surprised !!

I'm wayyy shy to do that lol. But I do have a friend on the west coast with two empty 8x8 garden beds... and I'll be moving out there at some point this summer. I want to get a couple chickens too.

There were times in my life when I had ample space for gardens and chickens, but didn't take advantage of the opportunity... a big regret.

2 days, lots of fill they did amazing job...... now im on a major budget.

HOW IS YOUR HEALTH ??.... Heartflowers

Cardboard is a great weedkiller if you can get large enough pieces. It can be slippery when wet, so I'm careful after rains to keep from falling. We have abundant rain and sun here, which encourages rampant growth of unwanted vegetation. No Roundup or synthetic herbicides allowed!
Whenever I have a garden problem, I consult the internet. And my favorite organic expert, Howard Garrett, whose newsletter I subscribe to. His fire ant killer is a must for Southern gardeners.

Be wary of landscape fabric. A trick I learned from a wise nursery woman. For permanent walkways lay down good quality plastic sheeting first, then put fabric on top for safer footing. Cardboard or newspaper and cardboard are good mulch to put around plants, covered with a thin layer of sustainable mulch. Never use cypress mulch, which is not sustainable. Local material is best. My favorite is pine straw from my own trees. So I grow my own mulch.

Are you familiar with edible forest gardening? It's a Permaculture method. I took their "wet slipper" advice to heart and planted garlic chives and onions and other often-used herbs in big pots on the deck outside our kitchen. My kids bought me a cordless lawmower for Mother's Day. Boy, do I love that! Quiet, easy to maneuver around desirable plants like Black-eyed Susan volunteers, and the lithium battery lasts longer than I do. chuckle

I'll post an update later to say whether it works or not....

But I just planted basil, garbonzo beans, and cilantro on the cheap.

Nurseries have seed packets for $1.99 that contain only a few seeds.

Asian grocers have very generous bags of seeds sold as legumes and spices.

Those raised beds are perfect for garlic. Garlic grows naturally on mountainsides, and needs room for deep roots to do well

Negative (-1): R Eldritch is a total douche bag. I tried to help him come out of his negative hating downward spiral, but he's incorrigible. Sorry I even wasted my valuable time on the asshole.

There were times in my life when I had ample space for gardens and chickens, but didn't take advantage of the opportunity... a big regret.

My property, which lies within incorporated county lines, backs up to a property that is unicorporated with about an acre of unused space with excellent exposure. I happened to be discussing the city ordinance against keeping chickens with my neighbor when he offered to allow be to put the coop on his land just inside the property line and offered to build a gate for easy access. I would have never asked the old grouch for such a favor. I learned a great lesson. Never be afraid to talk to strangers, I do it every day, every chance I get. People will surprise you.

One of the things our parents teach us is not to talk too strangers for understandable reasons but this behavior seems to follow us into adulthood and carries with it an unfortunate consequence...Fear of our fellow man.

Good to know. Territorial Seed in the US sells larger quantity specialty seeds for a fair price. I grow some extra plants that I let go to seed, like cilantro and beans. I know what you mean about cilantro seeds....there are not enough for successive plantings and they are expensive.
