This summer I went to the lane and scooped tons of great soil and mulched leaves to pot up coconuts. Much more fun than going to HD and lift heavy bags of soil. We are also blessed with winds that blow all kinds ofbranches off the oaks. Those that don't end up in the smoker (yum-yum) are used as planters for ferns and such. I really like the bromilead garden. The puppy is cute too! I want one (stump garden) but the oaks are protected so untill they get some disease we can't go chopping on them. Not that I would.
Just a note. I went on my walk-a-bout this AM and noticed some critter got my single green tomatoe. KARMA????
