Our garden beds have been prepared for planting pumpkins and squash. First the earth is lightly  turned over and loosened, then sand and compost and ash from our coconut shells is added. Followed by newspaper and cardboard as a mulch and dried grass. A bit later, small round openings will be created to set the new plants still growing from seed in our #permaculture nursery.
