    Hi Trish, your garden is unlike any I have ever seen - a lot of personality, with a food garden aspect as well as the pretty plants to charm the eyes. What zone are you? How much extra watering do you need to give your plants? What type of soil do you naturally have in your garden (before amending it)? Well done! Enjoy the fruits of your labour.

      @Mansetomboy I'm in Zones 9~10.I live in the Nevada Desert.I use white paper and coffee grounds to hold in moisture...I have to water a couple times a day in the heat.But not much water,I have a large earthworm farm so they keep my soil healthy and the plants happy.I feed the worms my kitchen and garden waste and in return I use their waste to make the plants happy.The soil was kinda sandy and rocky when we first started 5 yrs ago.Thanks

    please explain about the rocket stove I would love to have one, I end up making a bonfire and roasting wienies I'm sure the neighbors would rather I cook on a small grill to eliminate the smoke

      @LOUSYHUNTER The rocket stove is 2 large cement stepping stones and Bricks...I make mine 3 layers tall in the winter and use wood and charcoal to boil peanuts and make soup....while I work outside.The bottom row should have one half brick like you see on mine so you can stuff small pieces of wood in the fire without having to lift the pot.Makes a great grill in the summer too.just take away some bricks and add a grill top. Google Rocket stoves..there are Many different kinds Cheap and Easy
