hello, i decided to put in a fairly big bog garden this summer and took photos along the way. Maybe it will inspire someone else to do it or just reinforce that i am crazy. got the hole dug in a day and then took a couple weeks to fill the liner with peat and sand because it just took soooo much peat moss. think i ended up getting 30 bales when all was said and done.

I am in zone 6 so will be putting thick bed of pine needles over it for the winter. Most of the sarrs are light starved from their previous location just not having enough sun. Luckily this bog garden gets nice direct afternoon sun. got a 50 gallon drum hooked up to an RO unit by the bog since this is about 200 yards from my house. the barrel and RO unit will come inside for winter and setup again come spring.
