This book will introduce you to the easiest way to garden with the best results. The author gives detailed explanations on gardening with a multitude of plants and herbs. When to plant, where to plant, what plants like each other and which ones don't like each other.
Katie Swanberg converted 60% of lawn space into an edible garden in the middle of a drought. “At the time I lived in an area that received less than 20" of annual rainfall. It made sense to use water wisely, and watering grass that I couldn't eat just seemed awfully wasteful. I let half of my back lawn die, planted bare-root fruit trees, and sheet mulched it. Over time I added more edible plants, all in the idea of creating my own food forest.”
So here it is. Not very inspirational looking, eh? It's the end of March and everything is still dormant, except for a few daffodils making there way through the ground. We followed the Lasagna Garden lady's advice with our layers of growing medium and then we finished the top with fresh wood chips. After that on March 21st we planted our seeds. Stay tuned for some pictures when things start growing.
