Lasagna Gardening?

So I was reading and I found this very cool idea called lasagna gardening. I am trying to take better care of our yard, and I have been looking for ideas on how to make it nice and healthy and reduce the amount of work I have to do. I’ll admit it- I am lazy when it comes to yard work. I planted a garden this year, and it was nice, however I hate the weeding and the other stuff that comes with working in the yard outside, like the bees and wasps that literally can kill me. So, when I ran across this idea, it sounds amazing!!!

This is a display by the Master Gardeners from the Nashville Lawn and Garden show on Lasagna Gardening.
You start with newspaper, and then layer on your composting materials and keep going until it’s about two feet deep. It shrinks drastically in just a couple of weeks. Not only does it help to fertilize your garden, it helps prevent weeds come spring! I think my garden next year might be the best yet!

eShakti Giveaway!

I was provided a beautiful dress from eShakti for this giveaway! The Floral Applique Sweater Dress! I love eShakti because the clothes are very cute and comfortable, and the best part is we can all live our fantasy of having a custom tailored wardrobe without spending an arm and a leg! For a mere $7 more on any item you can send in your measurements and they will make the dress to your specifications.

I had mine made with 3/4 length sleeves to cover my upper arms and so I will feel comfortable wearing this wool blend dress all winter long. I was a little worried it would be itchy being wool but it is not. The dress is nice and snuggly warm, in a beautiful purple that will look stunning all the way into winter. I can't wait to wear it with black heels or my charcoal grey boots paired with a great bracelet and some hematite earrings this dress is great.

Right to Know

The California Right to Know bill is something that I have been watching and believe is very important. However in the US Monsanto is spending millions of dollars to fight this. However in the UK the very same company supports GMO labeling? Why the double standard? Read more here:
