Walksoftly once said that picking rocks was the worst job on the farm,well I don't mind it ...well as many as we "grow"here,I have no choice!So what do you do with ALL of them,make "flower beds" that you don't have to water!lol
BTW this is a SSSSSSSSMMMMMMMAAAAALLLLLL portion of the rocks I've picked up,and some not so small!I will post more after the crops are off.
These rocks are around our old farm house that we use for storage,and on the floor (pic#1)of the old ,long gone "smoke house".
Thanks for looking!

    Well that is the most practical garden I ever saw :-) Very creative doesn't look like a tropical garden but has a unique look . Love it !

    Great gardens, if you have to pick them you may as well put them to use!
    I really like how you placed the old items in with them.
    Even though it was a job that I never liked, I too find myself decorating the yard with them! :-)
    Thanks

    Great idea... Here is Cali, people are paying a ton of money to have their flower beds replaced by rocks... :)

    Thanks mani,ted,sean,walk,and Dr.!!Thanks for the compliments!Here in Indiana we grow them every year(our farm-77 acres-is on the same section of land as the limestone quarry)
    At the landscape center(about 30 miles away)they sell these for 18 cents a pound,considering the weight of the nice looking,larger ones,I could make a killing!

    That could be a better return than the crop you might grow!

    But more back breaking!!!!!!!!!!

    If you quit digging around in the dirt, they won't sprout!
    Do you get the massive ones as well?
  8. gargoylecollector gargoylecollector, 1 year ago
    Yep those are the ones I'll post later,the big money ones:)

    Be careful guys ! I had a load of huge rocks delivered for landscaping and the driver and unloader died of a heart attack later that day :-( That was sad he was 48 years old .The rocks are now buried in a big hole .
  12. walksoftly walksoftly, 1 year ago
    I can understand why you buried them, that's way to young!
    A good reason not to lift them by hand, get out the heavy equipment.

    Manikin,see my fancy metal chicken house in the 1st pic?I have always wanted one of these ,but this one is not in so great condition!
  14. Manikin Manikin, 1 year ago
