My garden just got BIGGER!!!!
Many many thanks to my generous landlords Maurie and Rhonda Marr, whose support makes all this possible – THANKYOU!
This new section of garden has been recently ploughed to begin work….I have put 50% of the land straight into a green manure crop. Green manure is a way of providing fertiliser and organic matter directly to the soil by growing leguminous crops to flower (approx 8 weeks) and then cutting them and incorporating them into the soil for the crop that follows. The addition of green manure provides organic matter and fertiliser to the beds in preparation for the Autumn crops that will follow…the green manure I am using is buckwheat, japanese millet and cowpea.
