Well, I mentioned it in other forum. Would love to make a hyperturfa turtle. Sort of got an idea about how but haven't started yet. i do have a turtle steppingstone form, I guess now I need to make a pot on it's back. Think I can do it??? I hope so.

Don't you think they would get broken if I ship them? That is what I am afraid of. I sure wouldn't like it if I shipped something and it arrived broken. I've seen the way some postal people do packages. Didn't like it at all. If I shipped over the road I'd have to c harge more for postage too and insurance. This is why I haven't really done it.

Hi Charlene...good to see you...a familiar name! I will be lurking alot and making note of everything. NO ONE is doing any of this stuff on this side of the island, anyway...and I would love to try it!!! Would have to be light!!!

What do you know about Papercrete? Worth the mess?

I tried it but it didn't come out too good.It is a mess.
Maybe we can do it together to bumble along and blunder together.
Hey, Carol.

Perhaps you can direct me to where I can learn more about using shredded office paper. I have an endless source of shredded office paper I have been using in compost and to pack plants I ship. Currently I have about 6 garbage bags full!!! Is there anyway to use this other than Papercrete which really looks unyieldy? Can I mix it with, say, Perlite to make forms? Will try something really easy first like a paver or a planting bowl/box.

I know for papercrete you have to wet the paper down. Shredded paper makes great mulch too. Worms love it. How about a mini-planter?
Here is a picture of my turtle I'm making for succulents.

Nice turtle!!!

I use gobs of the paper in my bed where I am building up organic matter... Yea, thought I would try a mini planter just to experiment....but thought I would put it "OUT THERE" in case there are brilliant ideas floating about.... Ears perked up!
