We didn’t have a chance to do any gardening during the last year in Costa Rica. With the snakes and scorpions surrounding our house, our field work was limited to picking bananas and limes out of the trees.
Back in Canada, the whole family had a sudden urge to do some organic gardening in our yard so last week we spent some time building a Lasagna Garden with the kids.
We picked a spot on the south side of the house and started the prep work.
With a clean area, it was time for the layers.
Manure and compost
The “noodles” (i.e. cardboard).
Ready for planting!
On the subject of lasagna, Naimah took a break during the process to help prepare an edible version for dinner.
