    This is so amazing.

    It gives me hope that if/when I move back north to get away from this awful heat in Atlanta, I can bring my "children" with me and have them live!

    Okay Dom,

    What news of your outdoor bog? How has it been doing this summer?

    Hopefully there will be an update once spring rolls around.

    November 22: First snow of the winter: 15 cm. I used a rubber sheet for an extra protection agains't the cold.


    December 01: I've added some snow on my peat bog to protect it from the cold (-19 C)


    December 21: We had 2 snow storm this week. The first one gave us 40 cm of snow in one day and the other one 35 cm. It's unusual to have this much snow so early in winter (160 cm in total oe 5 feet). The peat bog is under the snow moutain.
