Deep mulch garden install soon

With temps in the 70's--yes, the 70's for more than one day--the ground is thawed here in southern WI.  With the ground thawed, you can install a new Deep Mulch/Lasagna Garden.

I always caution people not to install a deep mulch garden on top of frozen ground.  The materials used in a deep mulch garden are basically cellulose insulation.  We don't want a garden on top of an ide cube.

I do wonder if the deeper soil heat would thaw the frozen ground, but since I have not tried this yet, I don't want anyone to have a bad experience.  Better safe than sorry.

If you ground is thawed--go ahead and start to get your deep mulch garden installed.

Happy Gardening,
