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.
