I need to edit the photos and post them here for this particular bed. John has been experimenting with several approaches to the whole sustainable garden, one of those is the back to eden method. In this new bed we layered composted wood chips and leaves on the bottom and then some good soil on the top. I've planted lettuce in this bed and then once it's up I'll layer in leaves atop the soil in between the rows.
John will build the lid for it tomorrow, this will ensure that the rabbits don't eat my baby lettuce plants and the neighbors cat cannot use it as it's litterbox.
