The lasagna garden – 5 weeks on

Five weeks after planting the ‘lasagna garden’ (April 26th) we have a plethora of fresh greens (and even a few baby carrots!)

When a few weeds started to germinate on one of the beds we simply added a layer of grass clippings and shredded leaves to smother them. That’s how easily organic weed and feed works!

Peter is one of the students in the ‘Twelve Steps to HomeGrown Food Production’ programme I am teaching this year. He decided to use his whole garden to feed his family (and to share extra food with his neighbours!) This is what his front garden looks like so far.
