Erin's Iowa Lasagna Garden
Gravel road
Down this long gravel road and to the right sits my parents' farm in Iowa. In an attempt to have a garden here, more than 150 miles away from my Chicago apartment, I decided to build a lasagna garden. Don't let the name fool you—a lasagna garden is not full of tomatoes, oregano and other ingredients that go into an Italian dish; it's a method of gardening that yields terrific results.
