neighborhood beautification

Our rad neighbors let us plant our veggies on the side of their house which has better southern exposure than we do. They have two concrete planter boxes outside out their house, one small and one large. We planted the little box for them a few weeks ago and they were stoked. After putting it off for a while, my neighbor on the other side of our house, Snaggle and I decided to have it. The box is 12' x 6' full of weeds, gravel and shitty soil (more like dirt). While my neighbor and I began to sift out the gravel, pull out all the weeds and get rid of a bunch of the dirt, snaggle went on a mission for soil amendments, Bumper Crop, Manure and soil. She also made a massive Home Depot run to scour the garden dept for quality plants. Snaggle came back with a Truck full of garden, it was unreal, she killed it. Beers were drank, crappy music was played, many a pedestrian ogled at what we were doing, several people attempted to play armchair quaterback and from a box of dirt a garden was made.

  1. good on ya!

    that box looks like it has no right to exist near you...much less adjacent to you...and NOT be housing a garden.

    NICE ONE!!
