OK - my cosmos square isn't anything to speak of right now, but here is how I did it. There was a dead tree
that was just a big twig with twigs coming off it - I finally gave up on the thing and let Jeff cut it down.
It was legal - not over 12 inches in diameter. So we broke up the branches, put the log on the south lot for me to do something with it, then went about cleaning up the branches - ugh.
I took the small railway ties I got from a renovation around the corner, put them together in a square and filled in some mulch, then garden soil and put five packs of cosmo seeds
in . . .
that log I mentioned is going to go toward making a raised mulch place. Wierd, I know, but I'm attracted to those thorny plants
that come up - the ones that go grey and hard and look something like a groundsel of some kind? Really ugly, but I love watching them grow. Well, I'm thinking of putting them in the bend of the fence on the south lot.
I don't know if I have a pic of this - it's a particularly messy place.
No - looks like I didn't take any of that. No reason to do so right now anyway.
Maybe I'll give this project priority this week and do some 'how to' pics as I go.
