Roots hold terrace in place

Roots hold soilI know you’ve all been
waiting with baited breath to find out if our
hold up to
the weight of the soil.  Heavy rains are usually what cause the
soil to slump, so when days of downpours flooded our creek, I donned my
rain clothes and walked up to check on the terraces.

Although a little soil
had eroded down to be caught by the boards and logs, there’s actually
still a pretty big gap between the earth and the terrace walls in most
places.  I did quite a bit of hacking through roots while digging
out the terrace, and it turns out that those roots are holding the soil
quite firmly in place.  Makes me wonder if we didn’t really even
need the boards after all.

Our chicken waterer is the POOP-free alternative
to traditional, filthy waterers.
