Nice berm, Dylan. A bit bare for my tastes, though. Are you sure you don't want to add something? Maybe wood chips?

You might also be lacking in mineral soil. Just a thought.

Otherwise, you might want to pee on this one occasionally. Something tells me it might go nitrogen deficient.

(Hilarious. You keep doing what you're doing.)
