|Tires stacked five high|
|T posts to keep the tire stacks from leaning too much...some tires on bottom collapse from the weight|
|The tire garden is made of two semi-circles, each 17 tires stacked about five high depending on the size of the tires|
|I think newspaper will help retain moisture|
|Mostly I didn't use catalogs because they are using slick paper. I used this one because the paper isn't slick and it doesn't have much colored ink.|
|Shredded leaves and some sticks which also retain moisture|
Wood shavings from Larry's planer also go into the piles
|Sometimes I shred the paper but I just dump the contents of the compost pail, brown bag and all, into the piles.|
This mess is from fall cleanup of my flower beds.
My strawberry plants have arrived and I still have lots to do before I can plant them in the tops of the tires. I don't know if this is going to work because the compost isn't decomposed. I will add lime and potting soil before I plant the strawberries.
