A Peek into the "Lasagna Method"

I call it the Lasagna Garden. I started it in March 2009, not realizing it needed a year for the newspaper and compost to cure and decompose the sod beneath. This new garden is 35 feet long and 25 feet wide.

It was the first really big project here,starting from scratch.

Your garden is beautiful!
Love prospers when a fault is forgiven, but dwelling on it separates close friends.
