Okay, so these two topics don't really have much to do with each other, but they do have to do with gardening in the big scheme of things. And I have pictures.

Lasagna gardening has grown in popularity over the past few years. I love it because I can get rid of the grass and weeds without having to break a sweat. Check out the simple 'how to' details here.

Below are a couple pictures of the process in one of my border beds. I believe that 'more is better' when it comes to layers of newspaper.

Below are two pictures of my hoya plant in bloom. It is such a fun and easy plant to grow--mine thrives with neglect. Now that's my kind of plant.

Happy gardening!


  1. I'd never heard of lasagna gardening before - interesting! I checked out that page... I guess, in a way, nature has this lasagna technique in mind in the forests, where there's so much natural mulch created by leaves falling.

    Nor do I have a clue what a hoya plant is. But it sounds easy to grow around here and your photos are lovely.


  2. Tui,

    Great observation about us taking a cue from nature. Personally I like 'natural mulch' rather than the fabric or other things they sell out there. Makes sense to me to work with nature rather than fight it.

    The hoya plant is fun. The blossoms look like they're made of plastic and they smell fantastic. I've heard the blossoms drip goopy stuff, but mine didn't seem to.

    Thanks again for stopping by!


I love comments, and visiting blogs of people who leave them! Thanks for visiting!
