Remember my lazy version of the late to the game lasagna garden I created?
Well, it's been two months. Nothing is really planted in it yet (soon. I think. I hope.), but the soil is absolutely gorgeous. Black, full of worms, and healthy looking. Luscious almost. A girl could get spoiled by this kind of dirt.
