    A new Challange

    Can you identify my rose?

    Kale, I have a dream come true rose. J&P screwed up an order on me last year and sent it as a freebie. If you give instructions (detailed). I will take a cutting for you. It's not one I would have chosen for myself, but I found an empty spot for it. It seems happy. Let me know.

    Starting a compost

    Lasagna Gardening?

    Sorry computer has been acting up, can't load the pictures. I started out by tilling a large part just to loosen the top, put down newspaper, cocoa bean shells, manure and the 3 inches of compost. I divided my large section up into smaller sections with pathes inbetween for walking.
