Work-related: dirt pyramid

We had a batch of coleus plugs (Solenostemon scutellarioides 'Pink Chaos') show up a while back this spring that just kind of sucked. We went ahead and planted them up, but then a lot of them rotted and died anyway, so we had to un-pot them. It turns out that potting mix of a certain level of dampness holds its shape pretty well, so I built a dirt pyramid (like a sand castle, but simpler) as I dumped the bad plants. It lasted for a few days.

Cool! Reminds me of a Maya pyramid. Maybe you could add a micro-observatory on top.

That's interesting.

Love the idea of a micro-observatory
