Yes, I'm lucky for sure, Griff. Those were already old railroad ties when I got a semi truckload back in the early 90's. Brought them all here when we moved in 99. They'd lost that old creosote smell long before I got them.

> Here's a look at my 3 nursery beds up by the shed & dog run, taken yesterday, facing west. These beds are in full sun for most of the day.
> There weren't any gardens here at all when we moved here in the very rainy July of 99. The nursery beds for the iris were tossed together first thing, but of course. It's still sturdy enough for me to hop up on the landscape ties to take pictures. :O
> Those 2 narrow strips are planted with historic iris and I hope to get the bed right next to the shed also planted w some historic TB's, IB's and BB's that need to be moved.
> Donald, that triangle bed is where I was thinking about trying your sand method for AB's.
