Guerrilla Gardening, Part II
And let me tell you, Texas clay (especially when situated in the middle of a median) is not a very hospitable medium. It's hard as a rock, totally void of ANY insect or worm population (we saw ONE burrowing June Bug and a grub), and full of rocks, old pieces of asphalt, and pieces of old houses... But it's coming! We worked on it for about 3 1/2 hours yesterday, and got about half of it dug, sifted, and raked. Tonight we will have to finish digging, mix in a BUNCH of compost and plant tomorrow, because we leave for our Honeymoon Thursday!
And yesterday we chicken wired the top of the chicken run (no more squirrels in the coop!) and cleaned it, planted some lantana and lavendar near the container garden to attract some pollenators, and made some homemade biscuits with MaryJane's Budget Mix, my new favorite ridiculously easy, baking mix.
