Before & After: Erin’s Fire Pit

I love that Erin wrote me to tell me about her firepit.  It is a fantastic project that both she and I are excited to share, because it is a compeltely do-able (contractor-free) project and the results (especially as we are heading into the cozy fall) are beautiful.

Even Erin’s mom helped out.   Great job, thanks for sharing Erin!

  1. Thanks so much, Rochelle!

    Haha, the second photo is of my mom who helped us on the first day…I’m laughing because she has no idea this photo even exists so if she ever saw it on here, she’d die. ;)

ROCHELLE GREAYER – AUTHOR, LANDSCAPE DESIGNER, SUPER MOM WANNABE, FARMERS’ MARKET MANAGERESS, & FOUNDER/ EDITOR OF PITH + VIGOR

…I’ve had a few careers. The Highlights (in no particular order):

  • Mach 1.2 in the back seat of an F-14
  • Launching Russia’s first commercial satellite
  • Planting a giant Sequoia tree
  • Actually writing and publishing that book
  • Kickstarting a very cool garden newspaper

Other Stuff:
Love ‘Truck Songs’ – a super special mix tape heard only in my flare side Ford pick-up while on plant buying and flea market adventures. Will forever relish the day I was mistaken for Gwyneth Paltrow. I know that there is nothing better than Colorado roots, Montana blood and a rancher’s sensibility. If it is in the plant kingdom and its chartreuse, or grassy, or both – I want it. Can’t own enough pairs of Seven jeans. Thinks Rhinestone Cowboy and Grease were two of the best things about the 70s. Wears Sambas to garden and Hunters only when the mud is deep. Endless wanderlust will forever keep me in good supply of cocktail stories.
Past lives include stints as a Physicist Rocket Scientist, Pizza Maker, and Literary Agent Assistant

I’m hoping to add interest and variation to my garden-fresh bouquets and…

Everything You Ever Wanted (and didn’t want) to Know About Moss

Everything You Ever Wanted (and didn’t want) to Know About Moss

I’m always up for being sent off on a research tangent.  Not knowing where it will end up, what I will learn and what will inspire me to something else, is endlessly satisfying.  So when my friend Patrick recently inquired on another post… “Have gardeners incorporated moss species into their creations, whether they be Celtic…
