Lasagna Garden Failure!

Wow! I could not have said it better myself! Last spring I got an e-mail from someone who just raved about this new book she read about "Lasagna Gardening" and how excited she was to try this out. I admit I succumbed to peer pressure, relented and decided to try it for myself. All the while I was building this, I had this nagging voice saying this is not right, but I couldn't put my finger on it. So the long an short of it was that it was a mess and it was not worth my time and effort! Now it is a year latter and it has pretty much decomposed down to about nothing. I am just going to go back to my regular raised beds and using grass clippings as mulch and weed control. Besides the embarrassment, I am angry at the thought of what I could have canned last fall if I had stuck to what I know works.
