    Seems like you could put a succulent/cactus garden in the bern for aesthetics too. I'm glad the experiment is working.

    Good suggestion. Given the poor quality of the berm soil (most of it came off the roof), cactus may be the only thing capable of growing there!

    I hear cactus jelly is very popular out east. Maybe I'll start a cactus farm.

    Wouldn't touch the stuff. What word does it remind you of? There's a reason for it's near-homophonic resemblance to it. :)

    As for me, as long as it's smothered in green chili, it could be just about anything underneath :)

    But we digress from the topic at hand. Has anyone here done a surface-insulated berm, or anything like it?
