New Greenery

Post by urbandruid37 » Sun Jul 26, 2020 7:12 pm

Added a moss pit and a chia farm for the crabbies to enjoy. I may need to look at alternatives for climbing in and out of the pit. Any good suggestions? Image

Very nice!
Not sure if you have access to a drill or soldering iron, but both can go through plastic. I just bought a $22 soldering iron to try and make my own hummingbird feeder and bird fountain (I have to put holes in plastic). If you can put a few holes in the moss pit, you can attach craft mesh with zip ties for an easy way in and out of the pit.

Thanks for the suggestion! They seem to be able to make it up there now, but I will definitely add alternatives for climbing.

I'd fill it up with more moss so they way, you dont have to worry about the log inside the pit.
