This Is Bear House And It Sits Over The Grotto Jungle Below.

Salvage, Texas Jungle Grotto comes to Life

You would not think that a dry spot that I started with would develop a shady grotto with a canal, frogs all about, and lush cool shade so deep you nearly need a flashlight in the day time with the sun out. Salvage, Texas now has that along with Envision Lake and Miracle Mountain. This is miraculous change from where I started long ago when most thought I had simply gone dig crazy with big boy toys.

Please check out some great pictures of more of the results in the Grotto at Salvage, Texas.

You can see the Bear House behind the big dam where it gets a view of the wildlife that comes and goes down into the coolness of the grotto day and night.

Veggies come to life 1623Yes, the mounds are working and the veggies are loving their new life. Rain, sunshine, Love, and nutrients that have been awaiting digestion and becoming life are joining together with my vision of what I hope to create, the oasis in the midst of Texas, full of life, hope, promise, and salvage to the limit.
Here are some pictures of the great progress since I shotgunned seeds into all sorts of places to see which ones would take best where.

I think nearly two thirds of the thousands of seeds I put out must have taken for there is more life than I can begin to identify. I have barely tried to thin them out.

I want the seeding and the natural cycles to start and carry one year after year. Once we get the fruits, we get more seeds and the beat keeps going on. Yay!!!! ONLY THING IS, SOME OF THE OTHER Things like Bloodweed grow alot faster and take the light away. Working on the mix.

Here is a cool new plant growing in the deep shade of the grotto. Any Ideas on what it is??? I do not know but want more of them so I am going to plant some seeds as soon as I can be sure it needs such shade to grow so well.

Jungle plants like vines and trees that grow up feet as you can see, in just a couple months of rain.

grotto surprises 1668

The seed pods suggest it should be an abundant plant, yet I have not seen but one other and this one has a baby next to it that is not doing well and may need to be moved.

See how dense the over arching trees are such that  there is very little sunlight at these lower levels where it is cool and so many frogs are jumping you must take care not to step on one.

The vines reach up 30' into the trees and all about.  Many of the tree species here share the root systems and sprout up when they get far enough away from mom.

Here is a look see at what a few weeks has produced with virtually no additional care.
