I just figured out that I'm a genius,

or,

I just love shoveling wood chips around.

It makes sense to me, but I know nothing.

I will say there are already tons of fire ants in the chips, but there are fire ants everywhere in the soil here anyway, so it's not that big of a deal.

I plan to bury them completely so that no plastic is showing, but I still need to set up a drip system for them, and want the seedlings to sprout before I add anything else on them.

Feel free to tell me why it won't work.

Skip to about six minutes in to see the pots buried in the chips.



I also might of had a few too many beers this day judging by my slur.

It would make it incredibly easy to have raised beds of wood chips that 5 gallon buckets would fit into side by side.  Come winter, pull the buckets out and throw them in a greenhouse, or wherever.
Super simple, and super easy to add/remove from at will while disturbing no soil in the process.  It would look nice because all that would be seen is the wood chips.

Has anyone else done this or seen it?  I've done some quick google searches, but I'm not sure how to word it.



 
Good heavens! What have you done! Here, try to fix it with this tiny ad:
