A great objection to the common board or white picket fence for your garden is the certainty of the rotting of the lower parts of the posts in the ground. This is extremely frustrating and upsetting to a gardener like myself. There is one very effectual remedy for preventing this, which should be more frequently noticed and practiced among all organic gardeners. This consists of charring the bottoms of the posts. The preservative qualities of charcoal are well known to all organic gardeners. It is not affected by moisture, and hence the extremities of posts properly charred will not rot at the bottom or decompose! Please share with us all if you have used this method, and what the results were. Thanks and enjoy the fall harvest.
