First plants go in the Back to Eden Garden bed

We had a great time planning and then planting our new garden bed. There's really nothing different about planting in this bed than other types of garden beds except you need to move aside the very thick layer of wood chips to get to the soil beneath.  


We started by measuring out the rows and the moving all the wood chips aside

Once the chips are moved to the side, there's plenty of soil underneath to plant 4 inch plants in

Once the plants are in the soil, we moved the wood chips back around the plants but not all the way 
To plant seeds, we just moved the wood chips away to expose the soil underneath and put our seeds in the row. I watered this whole area really well 2 days ago and the soil was still very moist when I pulled the chips away. I expect this to be a very low water garden.

We can't wait to keep you posted about how this works out for us.

As Gidget surveys her property, she becomes more disgusted. She thinks we could have at least 1000 chickens.

  2. The most widely recognized technique for plant spread is gathering seeds from plants you as of now have in the garden. A few plants like lettuce and celery will just sprout if presented to daylight; others, similar to phlox and allium, just in the event that they are totally secured. homyden.com/deer-control-identify-prevent-get-rid-deer/
