Playing in the Dirt

Last week, in 30 degree weather, Greg Watkins of Islandscape Landscaping (islandscapelandscaping.com) and I cleared my backyard and prepped a raised bed for a cut flower garden! So exciting. The raised bed, created by Greg and his team, is created out of recycled concrete from an old parking area on Sullivan's Island.

The bed is now covered with black landscaping cloth to kill any weed stragglers until planting begins.

Last night I ordered final seeds from Seeds of Change.

Check this company out: seedsofchange.com. They are dedicated to sustainable agriculture... sell tons of interesting seeds and offer a wealth of gardening information on their site.
