Keyhole Garden – Phase Two – Nitrogen and Carbon Layers


Today I layered a thin layer of chicken manure down on top of the cardboard

DSCN5939Black gold…Smells pretty good!

After I pulled out a huge root of a vine

DSCN5946It left this spot on the fence bare…slowly but surely that fence will trimmed of all greenery…Bring on the sun!

DSCN5947Then I topped up the whole thing with straw

DSCN5942I was getting a few looks from neighbors…what the heck is she doing over there…Others come by to check on my progress. Feels great to be connecting with them.

DSCN5950Watered it down very well..Don’t want a strong breeze to come up tonite and end up with straw all the way down the block!
