Here is a link that explains one of the easiest ways to make your soil ready to plant WITHOUT digging.

By laying down newspaper and then layers of oraganic stuff, your soil will be so fertile and the worms do the work!

What do you think?

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

THere's a book called Weedless Gardening that I read over the winter that promotes similar philosophy. It was very helpful on the details and provided a lot of background.
