Gold might not be but pink wings was patented in 2015, so I can totally break the law there :)
And here we are, my first episode of #RootsRescued and #FlowerDiving: I've found all of these four beauties -well, three beauties and a cyclamen which is fighting to stay alive- in the same dumpster: I was really shocked since this orchid looks almost better than mine. I really can't understand people and their literal craving for throwing away EVERYTHING and keep on buying new stuff.
Right now they are being kept on preventive quarantine to check for bugs and parasites.
Rocky, not rock lol.
At three of the corners of each I used a 4 ft tall 2x4. Attached to these are some fencing panels bent in half. This creates a trellis on each bed that is four feet tall (great considering I have young kids), and a bed that can fit 9 square feet.
Even though I don't stick to square foot gardening, I do find the seeding squares handy. I've already planted one bed with lettuces, and another using my seeding square. The latter is planted with Kohl Rabi, Kale, and Perennial Kale.
So in response to my slightly polluted rock light soil, set above an outcropping of solid granite, I've decided to build my raised beds.
I built them out of 2x4s. These are still fairly cheap, even if they were significantly cheaper before the pandemic.
The bed consists of 4 walls three 2x4s high. Ideally this would be a foot tall, but since the boards are slightly smaller than 4 inches its actually 10 inches high.
Seven Days, a newspaper focused on local Vermont issues, has written an article about Chelsea Greens anti-vax support. Its sadly not surprising to anyone who has been on their mailing list for any length of time and been offput by some of their offerings. Also a pretty good example of how "worker owned" is a fairly broad term.
