gardening the vintage way
a day to garden for me! we have been moving my veggie garden this past week or two - I wanted it nearer to my kitchen, which made more sense. I just mentioned it to my soul mate and he thought it was a great idea and started then and there! we had a few shrubs to pull out - a lilac which I was sad to lose but I will plant another somewhere else. The way the world is today - I want to start growing as much of my own produce as I can. Too many chemicals used in commercial growing and with this genetically modified stuff that is going on - well, that is a whole new world to me and I think to the powers that be - no one knows the long term effects.
off the soap box ! I have finished one bed - enriching it with mushroom compost, composted leaves and a good handful or two of lime. then covered it with lucerne and will let it rest til spring time - I want the worms to have a good old time for awhile and let them do their thing. I also hope to start another comfrey tea mix - wonderful stuff ! THE ORGANIC GARDEN
I hope to get to buy some herbs today and will plant them around the perimeter of the garden - not sure which ones as yet - but I am hoping to get a good variety - for cooking as well as healing. and some to make sleep pillows as well.
I just wandered around this morning and took a few photos of the garden in progress.
