pictures from spring gardening
I made some photographs of my spring gardening projects while I was at my garden on Brangus Lane the first week in March. I developed and scanned the film and now I'm going to post some of the results. It's not as convenient and quick as a digital camera, but I love my Holga anyway.
First I want to show the excellent compost pile that I made a year ago, and that is now yielding excellent leaf mold compost. I made it with steel posts and chicken wire. Chicken wire is a great medium for all kinds of garden sculpture. The only bad thing about it as a compost pile holder is that dogs can easily bend it over and climb in and eat kitchen scraps, which is sometimes not good for them.
