Now that I’ve mapped out my food garden, I need to prepare the garden patch. The best way to go about this, so I’m told, is as follows:
* Measure the hole you want to dig
* Mark it with string and stones (one spade length wide; one spade length deep; and two spade lengths long)
* Dig out the soil from the hole
* Put leaves and grass at the bottom of the hole and water
* Put back the soil.
I’ll let you know how it goes…
