Diamond in the Rough

The bog project is moving along nicely. Here is the finished hole.

With the liner installed.

Ten bags of this stuff ...

... isn't quite enough.

But it is getting there. As is the garden in the background, with the addition of a layer of compost and the first plants.

We've also installed a rain barrel to help insure the bog stays wet throughout the year.

Net steps are to finish filling the bog with sphagnum peat moss, trim and bury the liner, install a pipe underground from the rain barrel to the bog, and of course add the first plants.
