I knew better; I just didn’t care…

We all know that bigger isn’t always better, right?  I should, yet when my husband was asking me how big I want this raised bed, the answer undoubtedly was “well how big can you make it?”.  We reigned ourselves in a little bit but still managed to talk ourselves into eight feet across.  And as it turns out, my arms are quite simply not that long (who knew?).  So it was either paving stones through the middle or one large beam; we went for the beam.

Now the beauty of wood in the garden is that slugs love it.  And at the risk of turning your stomach, they tend to congregate under it and then when you use it as a footpath, well, your slug problem tends to decrease somewhat.

More on slug & snail warfare later…

    My blog looks weird when browsing from my apple iphone.
    I’m trying to find a theme or plugin that might be able to correct this issue.
    If you have any suggestions, please share. Thanks!

    Hello! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any problems with hackers?
    My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing many months of hard work due
    to no data backup. Do you have any methods to prevent hackers?

  6. There’s definately a great deal to find out
    about this topic. I love all of the points you made.
