PATIO LASAGNA PATCH

https://m.facebook.com/sohinton/albums/2244077715671512/

This started TODAY (thanks DH) when six (paper) leaf bags to immediately upcycle as the bottom layer.... were emptied in today's unpacking of most of the clothes and linens we'd brought from PA.

The plan is to border the left side and the front with block-- maybe the back also to hold moisture away from the neighbor's fence. This will connect a small square concrete pad on the left to a raised pad on the right, which provides its own wall and thus needs no block.

The parrot cage that lives there (currently off to the side) will go back there, but on risers to keep its feet dry, angled as before. Lasagna layers will continue to be added around the cage, making a propagation bed in the patio.

Brandon will help add the layers of soil, mulch, and compost to fill the bed, over the summer. He'll also suggest ways to use what HAS been a square of weeds choking off a poor little euonymus. (Not veggies due to persistent Roundup use in previous years.)
