Garden update

first lasagna garden

Here's the first one in progress

It promises to be another warm spring day today.  That means a trip to the bale store…only greenhorn farmer types would call it that.  But that’s what it is, the place where I buy the bales of straw and alfalfa I use to build my gardens.  Each time we go the employees ask me what I’m using all this for. (It’s unusual to buy so much straw so frequently.)  Each time I answer, “I’m building a garden.”  And just like clockwork they all look at me like I’m speaking French.  Oh yeah.  I’m a farmer in cattle country.

Two of three gardens finished

The first two Lasagna gardens finished and mostly planted

But look what I can do with straw and compost!
