Another camera phone photo.......this is one of my garden boxes that has been invaded by tree roots. As you can see, I'm in the process of removing the soil (down to ground level) and the roots. This particular box is 8 feet (approx. 2.5 meters) flat side to flat side. The brackets on the sides are for attaching ribs when I want to make a "greenhouse" out of the box.
You can see my composting operation in the background at the edge of the trees. I shred leaves and pine straw (when I find time) and mix them with manure in the green composting drum and turn it a few times each day for three weeks to allow the mix to go through a "heat" and then I feed the finished compost to my red-worms.
Red-worms are very hungry little animals, so they make a lot of organic fertilizer for me to mix with the soil. Red-worms are somewhat different than earthworms in that they are top-feeders and have a more voracious appetite.
I have to garden in raised boxes to keep Armadillos from digging up my garden to get to the to their favorite food... worms. Armadillos are a recent invasion of the past 10 or 12 years here in N. Florida.
Guess I told you more than you might want to know about this simple photo, but as my FT friends know by now, I am a very curious fellow myself....so I tell you as succinctly as I can about the subject of my photo. Whew!!!
