My green manure really took off with all the rain! We finally got some organic compost yesterday so we could prep the beds for planting.
I pushed over the green manure
covered it with hay
added the compost
and then topped with more hay to protect it!
Once the rain passes in a couple of days I can plant my seeds and seedlings! Excited to see what this new garden will offer!

Grateful for his bundle of healing goodness that my garden has gifted me! There is something so satisfying about gently digging out a clump of turmeric with such care that only a piece or two breaks off in the process. When I was cleaning the dirt out from around the rhizomes I found at least six big fat worms nestled in there! A sure sign of happy and healthy soil.
My favourite way to use this fresh turmeric is to make a delicious hot drink with ginger, lemon, black pepper and honey! Here is the recipe:

-1 tablespoon freshly grated ginger
-the juice of 1 whole lemon
-pinch of cracked black pepper
-honey to taste (optional)
-3 cups of water

The Canary Islands are safe to visit and a volcano eruption there is a "wonderful show", Spanish Tourism Minister Reyes Maroto said on Monday, just hours after 5,000 people, including hundreds of tourists, had to be evacuated.

"There are no restrictions on going to the island ... on the contrary, we're passing on the

Building the soil food web for my new raised garden beds!
I planted oats, wheat, buckwheat, millet, brown and yellow mustard, mung beans and soy beans for nitrogen fixing, and sunflowers.
I bought most of the seed from the bulk section of the health food stores to save money. Excited to see what sprouts!
When it grows to about 10% flowering, I will push it all over, cover with mulch and then some compost. Then I will plant my veggie seeds and seedling directly into the compost. The microbiome of the soil will be nicely established and ready to nourish the veggie garden.
