Lasagna Composting….Cardboard and Straw…Part One
So I have been collecting cardboard now for months…My husband was a bit unsure of the stack piling up in the garage. I kept assuring him that I did indeed have a plan…
I did not mention that I was not 100% sure of my plan. I just decided to leap with the intention that I am growing my soil in the healthiest and most natural way for the planet.
Here is what my semi de-weeded strip across the back yard looks like on Saturday morning.
And…here is what it looked like three hours or so later…I removed all the tape and staples from all the boxes. I did not think those things would compost too well. Boy there was a lot of tape.
I filled this bucket over three times…
The wind only picked up once. Thank goodness. This is what part one of stage one looked like. After I completed this stage I read that I should have watered down the boxes at this point. I did not for future reference.
Next the boys and I applied the straw. I bought two bales form the feed store here in town. We enjoyed our visit to the feed store. We are having bunny and chicken dream…but I will save that for another post.
So big step on our path to our sustainable family garden. Next step bring in the soil…and build a cold frame…huh…exactly my thoughts as well. Any input would be greatly appreciated.
Peace …Love and Light..
