planting time!

We've decided to rework our garden beds some in order to make room for a 6 X 8 greenhouse. We love growing our own organic potatoes so Gabe dismantled one long bed to construct a two tiered potato bed (in the distance).

Gabe attended a permaculture workshop in OKC about a month ago where he learned the 'lasagna method' of gardening. We've read about it before, but have yet to put it in to practice...until now.

start with a solid layer of plain cardboard and wet it down. add greens, then browns, alternating and topping with soil.

We did the same method using straw-bales for the sides of our strawberry and lettuce bed.
