Throwback Thursday: Towering Sunflowers
In 2008 it was a girasol, spanish for sunflower. Thank goodness for these pictures or else I might not believe it myself. The earth was perfect for a garden in the woods. Dack cut a few trees to use as beams for the roof and furniture for our house. I dug the remaining stumps and their roots out of the ground myself– manually. I used a pickax, a shovel, a handsaw and a lot of time. It took weeks. But what a sense of accomplishment! I planted about a half acre of Tulsi and it thrived along side famed Pau de arco and many other prized medicinals from Strictly Medicinal Seeds. So here's the proof: You can turn an ugly old tree stump into a magical flowering garden. And if you don't think you have the heart for the pickax, you could try this DIY method for manual tree stump removal using Epsom Salt:)
I'm a mom of two perfect kids and two fluffy English Mastiffs named Lilo & Stitch. I love to research, write, draw, paint, plant seeds, raise butterflies and make things! My Etsy is all organic and handmade by me. Our family loves the outdoors and so it's important that I contribute to a healthy environment and clean water by choosing sustainable materials.
