This is just a morning of potager garden harvest at Mezzacello. It’s encouraging. Lasagna gardening produces a very rich soil and in turn a lot of food. I can push this system even harder. Spinach and beans will go in the rows where onions and potatoes grew.

Now I know what optimal yields can support. These rows were conservatively planted. The irony is that I have collected all this food. Now I have to dry them, process the onion greens, put them in storage, and start canning. But now I am really hungry and don’t Have the energy to keep going. Lunch break!
