my latest garden project--a ginger plant in a tire because mi'ja digs up plants with her entrenching tools. not elegant but will work i hope. and it didn't take nearly as much time or effort as i thought it would, just an awl, a big knife and some leftover spray paint.
as i was taking the plant out of the pot i felt something squishy and alive. it scared the bejeesus out of me and i screamed like a girl. but it was a beautiful toad. i hope it stays.
this pic gives an idea of how busy my terrier/mystery mix keeps herself.
 Another little project is spreading a roof cactus. this cactus, i think i have mentioned, was a single little pad growing on my house roof. when roofers threw it down, i planted it. now i want it to spread to keep the chupacabras from climbing over the wall and into the yard.

"I grow them in two spots under my eaves here in the Pacific NW. They moved themselves by reseeding out from under the roof! The happier of the two likes dry, hot but afternoon shade. I cut them back after flowering & they grew new leaves again…"
