As my sustainable vegetable evolves I am discovering the importance of `dirt'.
Without strong rich dirt food lacks the nutrients to grow.
My garden is no longer the tame, ordered garden of my first efforts as my focus becomes building nutrient rich dirt.
The richness of the soil in which my food is growing is currently being built up with mulch, plant matter and and manure.
Compared with the same soil last year this earth now has texture and density to retain water and nutrients.
It is such a growing curve learning to produce quality food, and seem to learn something all the time. The red flowers above are from a herb I was given and are edible. If anyone knows its name please let me know.
Trying out new plants and foods is an added joy of creating a garden.
