Thanks to Jenna of Cold Antler Farm, I'm inspired to get back out into my garden today. What's got me inspired is a movie called Fresh, about healthy local food. You can bet it's going on my Netflix queue. Yesterday, J & I finished putting down the last of the cardboard in our garden paths, then covering all of it with a thick layer of leaves. We can already see a difference in the soil. We started this in the late summer/fall. It takes quite a lot of cardboard to cover the paths in a large raised bed garden. The soil is moister, there are more earthworms and it just looks healthier. As an added bonus, we'll never have to mow the garden again. Woohoo! What are you doing in your gardens?
