Lists are great things to spend time on.
Despite the wet weather, I’ve been busy making a comprehensive list of what to grow this year…and the reasons why I should.
The ability to store food is at the forefront of my thinking.
I’ve discovered this year that Beetroot stores very well indeed.
Not just that it stores well, but is a first class root vegetable in the making of healthy juice.
Most of the seeds will go into the polystyrene fish boxes I used last year.
I simply scattered the seeds into the filled boxes and pricked out the seedlings as they came on…the healthiest were those from boxes where the seed was all mixed in together and in no particular order!
Greens are next on my list…and again, in no particular order, just greens!
As a vegetarian who tries to avoid dairy, greens are an important part of my diet.
I add greens to my juice every day to stay fit and healthy.
I have lived at Bealtaine Cottage for almost ten years and have only needed to visit my doctor once.
During this time I have not suffered a cold or infection and never stayed a day in bed…something I must treat myself to at some point!
All the Herb beds were cut back and the paths in-between covered with straw…
to keep the weeds down.
After a day working in the tunnel and herb beds, I sat down on one of the benches on the veranda…and look who sat on the other!
Bealtaine Cottage is also on YouTube…with over 110 videos about Permaculture, planting, growing and living.
There are over 600 blogs in the archives on this site.
