The 3rd layer is steer manure and blood & bone meal. As you can see, there are 2 narrow footpaths that are lined with straw. The bed dimensions and order of the layers that I’m putting down are from Jonathan White’s Food4Wealth plan . The vegie beds go East-West and I will plant taller crops on the North end. I’ve dabbled with various plant spacing ideas over the years and I think I’ll use John Jeavons’ Grow Biointensive method for these beds.
