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!

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.
