No-Dig Garden

You’ll need:

  • A plot of land that is about 2.5 x 20 ft.
  • Newspaper
  • 1 bale alfalfa hay
  • 1 bale straw
  • 15 lbs. bone meal
  • 15 lbs. blood meal
  • 7 bags compost

Step 1: If necessary, level the area you plan to use for your bed. Then lay down newspaper, 10 to 20 layers thick (it will inhibit weed growth) and wet it.

Step 2: Put down a light layer of blood meal and bone meal — wet again.

Step 3: Put down a layer of alfalfa, top with another light layer of bone and blood meal — wet again.

Step 4: Put down a layer of straw, top with another light layer of bone and blood meal — aaaand wet again.

Step 5: Now .. you’re almost there. Top with your organic compost (2-4 inches thick). Wet. And you’re ready to plant.
