Today I finished putting the new border stones around the front garden and now it looks more balanced. I am saving the old stones for my winter vegetable garden since I plan to double it up so I can add better soil.
Once again I began a compost pile. I did it last year also but after a while I forgot to turn it over and the results were less than stellar! This year I am totally committed to composting success. This morning I took my garden cart and walked around my neighborhood looking for dry leaves. Needless to say, I got some strange looks from my neighbors.
Food for my compost pile
In the afternoon I took my Bonsai back to the bonsai nursery because it was dying, apparently from excessive watering. The nice folks at the nursery immediately put the tree in bonsai ICU and told me to come back for it in two weeks. Of course, while I was there I couldn’t help myself and bought another of these beautiful trees, this one a Chinese Elm. This one is for my office.
