Carolyn: I made my first lasagna bed last summer and started a long one, 4' x 25', along my kennel fence. It's so cool because you can put down all the ingredients and then plant right away, again without digging up the sod. I planted sunflowers, morning glories and broom corn in the little bed - planted immediately after making it.
The long "kennel bed" I started late last Fall and will add the other browns & greens (manure, compost, etc. this Spring. I will plant lots of vines to grow on the fence
I love lasagna gardening! Look at the natural products you're using-a great way to recycle newspapers. In fact, it was kind of funny--when I was preparing the lasagna bed along the kennel, I ran out of newspapers and had to use old seed and plant catalogs! hee hee
