Layers -- what should I do now?
Last year in the fall I put layers of newspaper, dried leaves and grass clippings on my planter boxes. I'm getting ready to start my vegetable garden. How do I get this ready? do I just plant my veggies by digging holes through the layers or do I have to till/mix all the layers up?
The summer temperatures get into the 90s where I live, if I just leave the layers in place and soak the topmost layer which is grass clippings, will that retain the mosisture and I don't have to water everday?
Thanks for any advice you can offer.
