Carrot Bed - Straw Bed and Lasagna Garden

Carrot Bed - Straw Bale / Lasagna Bed

A alternative way to grow carrots when your soil is hard packed clay. Two techniques combined in one bed, the Straw Bale Planting and the Lasagna Gardening (Layering), in order to investigate the best way to grow root plants in hard soil. Beetroots were also thrown in there for companion planting as well as pumpkins for a live mulch to protect the bed from the sun.
