Taking Steps to be Green

Went looking for compost at the now enclosed indoor farmer’s market near Jean Talon, but the store was closed! They had a bunch of different compost gated in though, and I had a quick look.  I wanted to start to experiment with compost indoors with some dry leaves, and raw vegetable clippings. in order to have some ready for spring time (probably it will take a lot longer).  I need a little bit of it to start off a batch.

While I was out of course had to take some snaps of any good architecture, and of course churches are always interesting.  I love the dome shapes on top, and elongated windows.

I came across this pic of the day for great ideas to plant some lemony plants to keep the mosquitoes at bay from thinking-stoneman.crevice-gardens

I love rocks and am trying to pick up dry stone-walling, however it’s quite a challenge for me as I have a bad back from an auto accident.  I had picked up some tips on proper lifting at the chiropractor, but picked up much more online from stone-walling association handbooks.  I can not do strait lifting, so I do a multiple mini maneuvers, mostly shifting, propping, or rolling, so gravity does most of the job. balancing weights.  Generally though I am stuck to embrace the wall of pain that happens afterward no matter how careful I am to avoid positions that I know can trigger the highly incapacitated zone.

As I am germinating thoughts about planning  a vegetable garden and designing a greenhouse, I also came across this wonderful space saving idea for planting strawberries.

A great idea to keep strawberries off the ground.

My jury is still out on whether to take up hydroponic gardening or not, I need to find out the pros and cons of it, but some of the facts I am discovering about plant make up are quite interesting.
