Making a Lasagne Vegetable Bed
It was about this time last year that a friend on Allotments4All also from MereBrow Giant Pumpkins.com sent me these free giant pumpkin seeds ... ( .thankyou SO much MereBrow ! ) .... whoo hoo! , and I began my first real trial of doing a " lasagne bed " up in my veg garden .
So I began straight away ... you can start this now ! Remove the weeds as best you can , then lay down newspapers , cardboard , manure , veg peelings , brittle brown branches and sticks and leaves , tea bags ,grass clippings after mowing .... make it in layers ....like a lasagne ! Begin now and slowly layer it all up through the winter..and the worms will munch their way through it...if you listen ..you can hear them crunching : )
Then in the Spring you can just fork through it and tumble it over abit.....it will look like crumbled Christmas Pudding ..... yummy...... well..for your plants it will be anyway !
