Got a garden plot going this weekend! Made it with Cyprus, 6X4, and raised it to 16''. Set it in a spot that gets more than 4 hours of sun a day- unheard of in our shady garden. Compost from our vegetables mixed with some good dirt from the garden (worms, worms, worms), then newspapers, then leaves... then a mixture of top soil and organic chicken manure compost. Planted a few lettuces, bok-choi, parsley, zucchini and our old rosemary that had been in a pot. Flowers courtesy of Eli. Keeping the tomato on a separate pot, so it will not suck the nutrients out of the dirt from the other veggies. We'll see how it goes...
