That's a beautiful dog! Jordan, another engineer, over at http://bluehillstead.blogspot.com/introduced her readers to your site. Both of you amaze me with your projects and planning. I love reading about what you're doing.Hearing your stories, planning and projects helps me do it my way, more intuitive than thought out, but obviously soaking up information and ideas from people along the way.I didn't get into building raised beds, for example. I just spread thick compost on the ground, partly because I am stingy and didn't want to pay Lowe's $30 per cedar board, and partly because I didn't know if my sites would be permanent. Guess what! It worked fine!My German shepherd, Franz, enjoyed your video too, especially when you whistled at the end and he jumped up to play!
Jude is just a darling, so cute. The garden bed looks really great. do you have it fenced in so that animals don't steal your harvest? If so, how do you get into it?
Man, Jude makes my day. The compost is a work of art!
The added bed height looks great. Some nice wood for sure. Maybe you will out grow Granny now :-)
Kate - thanks, i'm glad you enjoy the crazy inventions/ideas I come up with. :-)That's so nice of Jordan to do that. I'll definitely check her blog out!I think it's funny that your dog responded at my whistling. ha!Zach - thanks. Yes, my garden is completely fenced in, with each section removable. I posted a video back during the summer, that shows exactly how it works. Search for "main garden box", and you should find it. If not, let me know - and i'll locate it for you.stefaneener - I'm glad that Jude makes you smile. She's a good dog, but took lots of training from me!Dan - shhhh! You remember how granny whipped my butt this year! I'd like to forget all about it...heh.
zach - it was easy to find..http://engineeredgarden.blogspot.com/2009/08/explanation-of-my-big-garden-box.html
I can't believe how full your compost bins are! You're gonna have so much black gold for your garden next year. I, unfortunately, will have to purchase more of the commercial stuff this year. I need to set up a serious operation like yours.Also, Happy New Year, EG!
Thomas - the contents of each bin will shrink by at least 75% when finished. Still, you're right - it's gonna be alot of compost. Hehe..I might not even have to make any for the following year.Happy new year to you, too!
Jude is a darling dog. The compost piles are things of beauty. And your projects are inspiring. Thanks for sharing!
kitsapFG - yeah, Jude is my buddy....Thanks for the compliments..
I had to watch the video twice because I was laughing so hard at Jude the first time around I couldn't hear what you were saying.The higher level of your garden may even make it easier to work in as you won't have to stoop down so low. Your compost bins are beautiful!
Rachel - Jude's a real stinker sometimes! She can't get enough attention, and always becomes the focal point of every video I shoot. Hehe.
You are going to have a ton of compost. I just made two bins worth last year (I can say that now :>) and wish I had more.
Gulp, you're going to dig out a post hole between those bins! Better man than I... then again you knew that.As one with the pile kind of bins, yours are much better but I don't have that much material. I also don't have the muscle to turn that much and don't want cold composting. Oh, and I couldn't build your mechanical turner/aerator.Great garden addition. Boy do I wish I had your yard, or wanted to build mine in the front yard. Maybe some day.Great video as always!
