Report on first lasgna bed experience = positive
I'm still a relatively novice gardener. Last fall I started my first "lasagna" beds after reading Patricia Lanza's book. I let them cook over the winter and I just want to report that they look like they're going to be fabulous. Dug into one and found beautiful dark soily stuff above and below the newspaper(although the newspaper is still there; I'm not going to worry about it.) Also no grass growing up, unlike my old beds that I de-sodded and dug with my very own hands. I'm looking forward to planting this week with no de-sodding, no digging, and no need to mulch, since they're under a big old layer of mulch already. Will report results after planting later, but I'm optimistic. This is the way to go.
