The next step in that west bed....

Today I will begin a slow, steady input of stalks from my towering "Bolivian Sunflower" (Tithonia diversifolia), which years ago before I ID'd it I called "Giant Fuckin' Daisy", atop yesterday's layer of Paper Mulberry branches. I will space them far apart at first to insure I not keep the newly planted peanuts from growing. As they gain height and girth I will apply those phosphorus-rich, rapidly decaying stalks more often and more heavily. By years end this formerly crappy looking catch-all storage area with sand baking in oven-like conditions, should be moist and fertile and quite "humusy".
