Costa Rican Mint Bush planted in the new bog garden, next to use a door hole cutter to make 5-6 drainage holes on the sides of a 55 gallon plastic drum with the top cut out to make it be a giant Water Wise Container Garden and bury it in the sugar sand at the northwest corner of the food forest project to be home to a Strawberry Guava I bought from H.E.A.R.T. The holes will be roughly a foot from the bottom...someday, when the tree is root bound, the roots can exit those holes into the damper soil found at that depth. Over the years, as the sheet compost layer deepens, the entire soil mass of the food forest should be become, then remain, damp. The barrel will be filled hugelkulktur style, including a few 25 pound bags of plain white Publix brand cat litter.
