Another new garden...

I decided to take advantage of my neighbors manure pile. At this time he was using wood shavings for his bedding and the pile looked just like a giant pile of mulch. This gave me the idea of drawing out the shape and piling the much on thick to kill everything underneath and then let it sit for a year. Here I have rope laid out in the shape I wanted the garden

I lost track of how many times I filled that little trailer, but here it is all mulched up

Then I let it sit for a year. I did a LOT of weeding during that time and decided that next time I would spread wet newspaper down first!  Here it is the following summer planted up with Zinnia's, Marigold's, Lavetera, Cosmo's and Feverfew.
I love all the color!
