I’m not much of a cook, but I do love to garden. I found a great way to start a garden if you hate digging or your ground is just impossible to penetrate. It’s called lasagna gardening. Sheet composting is another term for it. I stumbled across it while I was looking into starting a garden. You start off by using newspaper or cardboard for the bottom layer, then on top of that you add peat moss. Your third layer is organic compost and you layer this by green and brown material. You top it with compost or mulch. The techniques vary but there is a wealth of information on the subject on the Internet.
The advantages of lasagna gardening are:
- You don’t have to weed or water as much because of heavy mulch.
- Works well in small places (even containers). Perfect when you have limited gardening space.
- No digging.
About the Shades Series Box Set that is up for grabs:
Kennedy Sinclair is given a pair of simple sunglasses. Or so she thinks. Within twenty-four hours, she discovers they are far from simple or normal. The lenses open a door to the dark side of her personality and a serial killer, who turns his focus on her. Can she outwit, outrun a murderer? And if she survives the night, does she have the strength to become the person destiny has created for her?
Shades of Holly
Enter Zach Howard, a man who’s finally managed to get his life on track, until that is, he comes across a pair of otherworldly sunglasses. Once on, they reveal scenes of a past he would like to forget and a future he finds terrifying. If he can trust what the visions portray, Holly, the one woman he’s never stopped loving, is in danger of a psychopath.
Christmas is a breath away, but will Holly take her last breath? Holly has no idea what fate has placed in front of her this holiday season. Two years before, she turned her back on Zach because she wasn’t strong enough to deal with his broken soul. This time around, does she have the courage to fight for Zach’s life at the risk of her own? Or can miracles and angels save them both?
Jenna Barnes slips on a pair of simple sunglasses, but they’re not so simple. Jenna soon realizes they’re dangerous when people start dying, including her soon to be ex-husband. His unnatural death has her on the police radar as a prime suspect. After all, she had the most to gain. But one of those police officers is none other than Kyle Newman, a man she’d loved and dumped five years ago.
Kyle Newman doesn’t believe Jenna killed her husband, and he sets out to protect her, only to become a suspect himself in her husband’s death. The killer is still out there. If Jenna doesn’t stop asking questions, he knows she could be next. He needs to guarantee that doesn’t happen. But is he willing to lose his career, even his life to save her? Because a pair of sunglasses can kill, and he’s soon going to find out the death of Jenna’s husband is just the beginning.
Good luck in the contest! 🙂 There is also a $15 Amazon gift card that you can win.
