This could get long {rant rant rant} I moved back to Molalla in 2000 to be near my kids and my only means of income at that time was opening my own Computer Shop. I converted the front room in an old house on the main hwy and survived for 10+yrs Howdy from the Newbie 3868 City born moved to the country, forced to retire early with a loss of pension. Not physically able to work a garden like I would/should like to but still going to keep trying the best I can study Been trying to do a bucket style garden but some plants just don't like to be confined. Area [front yard] Son an I made some stair case steps 2 buckets wide on 2 sides attached to the front porch with a walk way in between so I can reach across from the center to each bucket. Why buckets: My first thought was how I lost plants in some cold blasts in the past and buckets make it easier thinking to move while holding onto a cain :lolsignwave:
Tools and working area: I started in 2009 investing in a Electric Tiller [most hp I could get for the buck] This was MY SECRET GARDEN funny post Yes I loved the movie all 3 or 4 of them, but secret not really with a major hwy running by rofl This was the best spot for watching grand kids playing on both sides of the house while the parents an I chatted Howdy from the Newbie Thespo11
Distance pic of layout with a pile of clean dirt below the ramp (dang affraid dirt costs a lot) Howdy from the Newbie Img00310
General layout of where trees and trelllis will go. Howdy from the Newbie Treest10
Next I used my (RIP) wagon to remove the stump Howdy from the Newbie Stump111
Tiller Time: Howdy from the Newbie Nowtre10
I planted Boxwoods to hide Trash & Recycle carts so I could keep them in the front by porch saving me a rough haul from the back. Howdy from the Newbie Boxwoo10
I will show you what this all lead up to 3yrs later. sawing logs
