Well we have been building garden bed again. This was a continuation of the bed, we showed in an earlier post, along the rear property line of our place. We used some Tan Oak logs from trees we had to have removed anyway, for the sides of the bed and the step up in back.
This picture you will recognize as the first part of this bed we were working on before. We do have another log added to make the transition step down from the high bank in back. You can reference the pile of wood chips at the back of the top picture.

And as you can see the chip pile is barely in the foreground in this picture. Pretty much all that is left is to plant trees, shrubs, and flowers lots and lots of flowers.


  1. So lush with vegetation and more to come. Sigh...... from a suburban estate with no trees over 3 ft. Why will no one plant a tree??? Will the kids of tomorrow have to go on a day trip to see a tree, like visiting a zoo. Is this what a Botanical Garden is? A tree zoo?

    1. It is sad that people don't realize that without the trees we can't breath. We had a lot of trees cut down only to open up the areas we wanted to plant with trees and vegetation that will produce food. I do love the trees also...Thank you Lynda.
