The garden is where we grow produce to sell & eat. Last year the garden was started by putting down cardboard & newspaper, soil, our own goat manure bedding & then mulch. This method allows us to utilize the grasses in the field as a green manure. The cardboard & newspaper give the earthworms a place to hide while they are turning the grass into useful nutrients & feed the soil. The manure bedding also feeds the soil & helps keep moisture in the soil to reduce on watering. The mulch on top also helps retain moisture. In time, all of these components will continue to break down & add natural fertilizers.
What does all this mean? Nutrient-rich Vegetables!
