It is time to plan some lasanga guerilla gardens.
I have 3 things in my favour.
There is a railway a few hundred metres down the road with spare land
It is autumn so leaves are falling.
It is autumn so a bed of organic matter laid down now will rot nicely for a
mi to late spring planting.
To date I have lifted some large flat cardboard sheets and placed on them on
the spare land and covered with 3 bags of horse poop. Shortly some leave
will be added.
Come spring there should be a nice fertile patch to plant sweet corn and
Rob, I did almost the same thing last fall. All plants had
gone into hibernating and thus I was able to put about 6" of
falled, died maple leaves on top of my whole corner garden.
I then top it all off with 3 garbage cans of horse poo.
My plants seem to have like the arrangement as they are
growing faster this year and look a lot healthier. When my
plants fulling mature, I will add some loam and then mixed
everything in together.
Don't forget to consider the exposure of your endeavor to toxins and
heavy metals as you would growing near a roadway. More so because of
the many different goods transported by railway. Just don't consume
anything grown within a few hundred feet of the rail line.
