Just a quick picture update for those of you interested in my lasagna gardening project this year.
I didn’t end up adding any more food waste to the bed, but I guess the waste materials already in there have been enough to help my summer squash plants grow. It’s been very dry (up until the last day or so) during the past couple of weeks but they seem to be doing quite well anyway (and I have of course been watering them to help them along).
Now that they are getting fairly big (compared to seedlings), I will likely put a layer of straw back down on the bed to help keep moisture in and make it easier to bury wastes. I will also add a bunch of food waste in the middle zone as planned.
Will keep everyone posted!
