Sam and I came across this in Mother Earth News Magazine and thought it was very interesting. Its called a no dig garden. What you do is go and get bags of potting soil, poke holes in the bottom for drainage and root penetration, turn them over, cut out a rectangle in the top, lay it on the ground and plant your seeds or seedlings directly in the bag. Voila, instant garden! Isn't that cool? There is more information on the following web sites for anyone this appeals to. It really makes me want a yard, but I'll just have to wait for now.
