The Hooper's Garden - 6/5/04
Up to the early spring of 2003 this was where I put woody waste. Tree branches, sunflower, cosmos, woody trimmings all went on this pile for the past 4-5 years. Rabbits took up residence under the pile. Last year I cleand it all up. Burned some, dumped some. There is a lot of good organic matter here, but the ground under is extremely hard clay. It will take a lot more material to mix in if I decide to break up this clay soil. May small, rounded rocks here also from the initial U.S. Route 60 road construction.
