One of the things I like about Cantigny is that they share gardening ideas and have garden programs, etc. I actually lectured in the Idea Garden some years ago.
This time in addition to the plants I paid attention to the other things shared like Composting.
|This is bin one of the three bin system|
|The final two bins|
This compost system uses three bins where you put items in, don't really do much turning, and let them move through decomposition to create new soil. This is the method I use, but my bins are not as nicely made as i use just chicken wire. then I pull the wire away when it has broken down and can be used, using the wire to create another "fresh" bin.
I like these rolling composters as you can make compost in record time and it is kind fun to roll it.
I was also fascinated with trellises. They had a premade one of metal with a tea cup vine.
Always on the look out for a new way to mark my plants and create paths I latched onto these concrete ideas. Since I recently learned how to make tuffa and concrete I was fascinated with the idea of making a weather resistant marker I could put plants around.
