Okay. I'm back and proud to report that I have just finished three (count them -- 3) 4'x12' lasagna garden beds, all done under six hours! My final lasagna gardening was for the grapevines and strawberries and I was also able to show a woman down the street how to do her own.
Her husband does the landscaping for me and had never seen the kind of gardening that I do and, apparently, kept talking about it. So, she gave me a call and asked if she couldn't come down and take a look. I told her I was just getting ready to start the grapevine garden and she could not only watch, she could take part.
I have a convert; she will never do the old time gardening, again. I also showed her how I prepared all of my seeds that would go directly into the garden, using paper towels and a very thin flour glue, so I would just have to lay them out at planting time and cover them with soil. I do them, at night, while watching my favorite shows. I was able to completely plant my large container garden in under 15 minutes.
Have a new digital camera, now, and as soon as I have the pictures rescaled and put in chronological order on my website, I will place the URL here so that you all can see it.
This year, I also made paper towel herb gardens to give to my friends go their containers. It's a very exciting year.
