    Finally broke ground.. sorry for the crap pics.
    I suck at outdoor photography..


    Dug it about 3ft. deep. Figure after a week of conditioning it'll be ready for plants.





    GH still stands..



    May be time to start bringing out some more plants. Getting a little less nervous about it..



    Gotta decide what's going to go into this first bog.



    Moved the droso out. Figured it'd appreciate some food.



    flowers in the yard



    raspberries



    I forget what this is, but it's purple and cool.

    thats a pokeberry and it is highly poisonous to ingest, but the berries are great for making pinkish dyes. Also, its a pretty bad weed here in NC. Very neat greenhouse though! Are you eventually going to switch to a clear plastic or shade cloth or are you keeping the green tarp thing? Also, if that were my yard I would have made the entire grassy area a bog with stepping stones in between the areas but your way is probably more practical! Very nice mass.

    The GH is temporary. My father just picked up the last of the parts to build a nice one. So we'll probably start that next spring.
    The bog was a lot of work for this poor crippled boy to do alone. Couldn't imagine trying to do a larger one by myself. Love your idea though..

    If my knees could take it, I'd be digging all week long.

    If you need some plants to fill the bog with I've got all sorts of Sarracenia seedlings that will probably be up for grab in the next year or so. Also, i'm constantly dividing my collection

    I appreciate the offer, but I'm pretty well set. Gonna have to make another bog or two just to fit all my plants in.
