Poor Country Boy Gardening

Poor country boy gardening is when you want or need something for your garden and can't afford it. So you get creative on how to get it trading or bartering for it. digging it up out of an empty field or off the side of the road or a neighbors yard.

That company has a lot of waste.

By the way almost had to hurl the other day they were dumping a whole pallet of mulch and dirt in the trash. apparently they go bad in the sun making the bags weak so they had to be thrown out. waste of good dirt and mulch waste of money guess those go bad in the sun too.   sorry frustrating to a poor country boy gardener

Catherine not only sprinkle the seeds make designs or spell words with them like "mind your own business" 

most wild flowers are considered weeds

Robin if it's not there yard and garden not there business period.  tell them to close there eyes when they go by and try not to run into the neighbors house doing it.

Comment by Vicky Myers on February 25, 2012 at 8:02pm

Gotta be careful with some wild flowers or they will take over he world and be considered weeds.
