The Pathetic Patch

As promised, here are a couple of pictures of my "soil." As one of my friends said (shortly after crying out that she'd never seen such bad dirt in her life), it's got good drainage.

And here's a shot in front of the deck stairs, where some extra strawberries went.


  1. hope the garden thrives!

    that's not the worst soil; try clay.

  2. Go get a couple of bags of mushroom compost, some peat moss and some vermiculite or perlite. Don't add topsoil; just the compost and the peat moss. For $25, you'll turn sad into great.
