I added a nice corner to my garden today --- added (3) 5G Purple Fountain grasses in front of and in a semi-circle one very large Alphonse Karr Bamboo. This bamboo is really nice and colorful ---
green vertical lines on nice 2" yellow stalks. Mulched it all in with cypress and put in soaker hoses & connected to existing soaker system. Should be really nice once it all fills out. Going to keep the bamboo cut back to around 7-8' tall -----

In any case, just wanted to share my little garden adventure.

I doubled the size of my garden today. I put down 450 lbs. ammonium nitrate, 300 lbs. of 19-19-19, and 550 lbs. of lime. I am waiting for the soil to dry out a little before I take the pto tiller to it. I want to make the rows wider this year so I can just run the small 5 hp tiller up the rows to keep the weeds at bay.

Yet another reason to buy the pto spreader. This is the last year I am spreading this stuff by hand in the push drop spreader. I must have walked 10 miles altogether. turtle
