GROUNDS FOR IMPROVEMENT

BOB AND CAMILLE AT HOME ON MAUI

November, 2002

 

ADVENTURES IN SHEET MULCHING - THE MANY USES OF CARDBOARD

 

By simply laying down these sheets of cardboard, we turned a bank of weeds into an extension for our potato garden.

 

AZALEA RESCUE

 

Here's what two adults wielding hand tools can do in an hour and a half.  Cane grass grows 15 feet high and smothers everything in its path.

 

BROMELIAD PROJECT

 

It takes a sculptors eye to see the many beautiful plants waiting for release from the weeds.  These lovely bromeliad gardens revealed themselves in return for our efforts.

 

CLEAN UP UNDER THE OIL PALM

 

Another one of those fun projects - we took this one on Saturday, November 10th.  Little by little, we are pushing back the molasses grass, cane and vines.

 

COMPOST SLEEVE

 

Bob's a happy man after finding this discarded sleeve and realizing how much easier it makes the weekly chore of turning the compost pile.  Not to mention the pretty little bun we find after lifting off the sleeve.  Bob then turns the compost back into the sleeve to cook for another week.

 

PLANT CLINIC

 

Starting out the month with some fresh pots.
