Ok. And we’re off!
We began taking steps today to put our Back to Eden garden in place.We will have to prepare our growing area first. Several easy steps to get things ready, and then it’ll be a waiting game until planting season.
Plot of land. Done Contact tree service about mulch. Done Obtain massive pile of recycled newspapers. Done Locate source for good soil or compost. (My little Christmas-present composter isn’t enough for even 1/16 of the area that we’ll be gardening!)Done
Identify some good helpers. Done [My 8-year-old son, my mom (on whose land we live) and my brother.] Apply at least three layers of newspaper all over surface. (Four is better.)Done
Apply a layer of soil of compost over newspaper. (wouldn’t have been necessary if we started in early fall)Done
Apply 4-6″ of tree mulch over soil or compost.Done
Wait for planting season!Done
