We have been laying cardboard for a large lasagna garden (also known as sheet composting). This past week we took a day off school and Elijah and I hauled some compost from our neighbors massive compost pile and planted beets, cilantro, spinach and radishes. I added some chard and kale that i tore out of my garden in VA. All are doing surprisingly well! You can see in the foreground of the picture what I hope my whole garden will look like one day, covered in black gold and sprouting life. Neil hopes to add the rest of the compost this week using his truck. This will significantly reduce our white trash appeal by hiding all that cardboard and making it worm food.
I love gardening. If only I could do it more!
