Lasagna Mulching

B harvesting horse man. in Burnaby

B harvesting rainbows for our garden mulch. We hear it is very high in potassium and happiness:)

LT layering seaweed during January "Workbee". S and B gathered seaweed (Tsawwassen), horse manure, and rainbows to layer with leaves and compost.This will magically turn into soil hopefully in time for spring planting. However, this week (end of Feb) our darling crow friends have been rooting around in it, displaying the manure on the sidewalk. Looks like the magic is not happening very quickly yet. We had rinsed the seaweed with collected rainwater to remove salt. The rest has been left in the rain for a more thorough rinse.
