Waste not want not....safe now to trim brown leaves and male bud clusters from my bananas, so will toss them plus big containers filled with weeds I've let die and turn brown into the kiddy pool that will soon be a giant Water Wise Container Garden in my south bed being revamped. Once I add manure from the nearby stables and dried poop from the hen house, it all gets topped with aged compost from two barrels followed by a thin layer of aged oak chips mulch.

Tanja and Jared are delights to spend time with, and I've enjoyed half a dozen events at their productive and wonderfully orderly and tidy yard there beside Rowlett Park, their damp yard being on the west bank of the dam side of the Hillsborough River. I so admire them for conceiving of this project, then tenaciously making it happen. With both working and having a young child AND a new baby I don't know how they do it all! I hope the city has the vision to expand upon this first effort!
