This week has seen more seedlings going in…it is amazing to watch the vigour of spring.

Along with being a ‘no-dig gardener’, I am also a companion planter…the plants and I love to create living mandala’s along the beds, and I find this results in a healthier system too 🙂 Just as is true for one of my other passions, feng shui, energy flows better in flowing natural curves than in straight lines.

In the photo’s below you will see a terracotta pot lid in the centre of the mandala…this is part of a trial of one of the most efficient, ingenius, and ancient irrigation systems ever developed…ollas (pronounced “oy-yahs”)…..more about them another time…
