Rain gardens can even pop up and work effectively on parking lot areas. After removing asphalt, a rain garden basin could be built along this parking area of Totem Ocean Trailer Express, a shipping and cargo company at the Port of Tacoma, Washington.

Rain gardens at this site handle roughly 250,000 gallons of rain water runoff annually, which reduces the amount of toxic pollutants washing into nearby Commencement Bay.

With carrots, soil prep is the secret to getting a harvest of pretty roots. Carrots need soil that’s free and clear of obstacles—stones, pebbles, sticks—to a depth of at least 6 inches (more is better). Lack of buried obstacles helps ensure straight roots. Otherwise, when a carrot hits a pebble, it shifts and becomes misshapen. The soil should be rich in organic matter so it retains moisture. Clay soils are particularly difficult to grow carrots and definitely benefit from heaps of organic matter.
