    Great system! Do you think the olla system will supply water quickly enough to water-loving veggies like lettuce?

    Jim and Jessica you shouldn't have too much problem with nitrogen robbing if the wood chips are on the top layer of the garden.
    I grow in 100% compost and it works great. Totally healthy for the plants and absorbs water and also allows for drainage is needed. So get a couple more truck loads of compost if you can.
    Can't wait to see what the garden looks like. Mine looks like chicken poop, I haven't done anything at all. I'll be doing videos on "it's okay to start your garden late"….
