This shows a Swangkee Flowerbed, which uses ROUGH Rocks for Mulch.
There are more than 30 Good Reasons and Great Advantages for using such Mulching Rocks in a Garden, even if that Garden is not 100% Weedless. However, later on I will show to you such a Garden, which uses Profitable $wangkee Mulching Rocks! Therefore, do not think that I am Trying to Deceive you: because I am not. However, if you had a Tendency to Think like Vern’s X-wife, you might Think that I am Trying to Deceive you; and therefore, you might draw up the Wrong Conclusions, and even Divorce yourself from this Website: because you are Judging the Subject before you have Learned ALL of the Evidence! Therefore, have Faith and Trust, until you can Prove me to be Right or Wrong.
This shows a Swangkee Flowerbed, which uses ROUGH Rocks for Mulch, after it grew up.
Now, it Appears that it would Require a LOT of Hard Work to make a Flowerbed like this, which is True; but, most of that Work can be done during the Winter Months for Good Exercise, when it is Cool — rather than Waste any Time and Energy at some Gymnasium or “Fitness Center,” doing Futile Profitless Exercises with Bar Bells, Push-ups, Pull-ups, Squat Benders, Jumping Jacks, or whatever — and then, after your Mulching Rocks are in Place, you can Relax when it gets Hot: because it only Requires a half Hour or less during a whole Season, in Order for you to Weed this Kind of a Flowerbed, even if you are Old and Tired. Indeed, you simply get your Topsoil Prepared with the Correct Fertilizers (as I will Explain later on), and then you lay down your Mulching Rocks, using Peat Moss, Rotted Sawdust, Cyprus Bark, or Wood Chips in the Cracks between the Rocks; and then, when it comes Time for Planting Flowers, you remove some of the Peat Moss, and Plant your Pre-started Flowers, which are found in Flower Shops all over this Country, unless you want to grow your own. And at last, you put some of that Peat Moss or Cyprus Bark back into those Spaces around the Flowers, after they have grown up a few more inches. Moreover, all of that Work can be done during the Cool Time of the Mornings, which Means that you can have such a Flowerbed without raising so much as one Drop of Sweat, if you just Remember to remove your Coat before you go to Work with those Rocks during the Winter.
We treated our Old Garden with Various Powdered Rocks.
For Example, we added about one inch of Granite Dust on top of one Trailer-load of Natural Crushed Limestone on this 50-feet by 50-feet Plot, along with 100 pounds of Rock Phosphate, and 50 pounds of Mississippi Mud, plus 20 pounds of Epson Salts, 10 pounds of Iron Shavings, and several Tons of Various “Secret” Ingredients, mostly Composted Rabbit Manure, Grass Clippings, Tree Leaves, and Glacial Gravel Dust, which is what Produced that 4-feet-tall Kale! Yes, it did Require a LOT of Work: because we first of all had to Remove several Tons of Rocks, by Hand, as we were Tilling up this Ground. Indeed, there were Enough Rocks to build a Concrete Wall around it; but, we are Saving them for something very Special — namely a New Jerusalem in the Great State of Flexible Texas! You see, my Friend, I Believe that the Creator of this Vast Universe has the Power to do anything that he Wants to do — even if he Wants to Transform Rocks into Pure Gold, or Raise up the Woolly Mammoth Elephants from our Garden: because he is Able to Do anything that he Wants to Do. However, in our Situation, it will not be done because he WANTS to Do it; but, because he will HAVE to do it: because it Appears that there is no other Way for us to Solve more than 248 Massive Problems, one of which is to be Able to AFFORD those Profitable $wangkee Mulching Rocks, which you can see Photos of in the next Section of this Photo Gallery.
We spent tens of thousands of dollars for Machines and my Labor in the Big Garden, mowing off the Grasses and Weeds for the Gardens on the Hilltop. You will never know what it was like, unless you have done it, yourself, in 100 ºF Weather in Arkansas, "The Land of Opportunity." HUMBUG! It turned out to be Land of Curses. (See the Links below.) The Politicians say, "Get a good education, work hard, save your money, and play by the rules, and you will succeed in America." DOUBLE HUMBUG!
