From Dirt to Food

Now that you've seen the process of building the lasagna garden I thought I'd show you the fruits of all that hard labor. The following slide show photos are from the previous two summers of growing in that space. The first year we planted right after Mother's Day which is customary and practical in this zone. We're at about 5,500 foot elevation, just a little lower than Denver with a similar climate. In fact, it's April 8 and we're in the middle of a massive snowstorm that came to visit clear from Alaska. Feels like Christmas but I know from living here for the last 16 years that it will eventually clear up and we'll have a lovely if short spring. The trees will bud, the flowers bloom and by May the sun will come back to stay and play and warm the soil.
