This year we added some more compost to the cottage garden.
Yeah! for animals that poop all the time.
Last years poop is this years dirt.
Lily thinks that is horrifying.
I cut out boxes to be the weed mat around the broccoli.
Notice lots of little holes for water to soak in?
Then I covered the whole thing with last years leaves.
I hope it works.
Last year I just put everything right into the dirt, but I wanted to try the cardboard/leaves and see if it cuts down my weeding time.
