Garden

It is winter where I live so not much is happening in my garden at the moment apart from my garlic bulbs which are growing slowly, most of the other plants are dormant.

I am hoping this year to garden using biodynamic methods and have bought a rather lovely year planner to help with this.


Whilst I was out shopping yesterday I was offered a free diary in the health food shop which I thought would help me with organising myself to garden using this, new to me, method.  So I spent some time writing in entries for the first three months of this year, to interpret my chart and to put in when I could be doing some of the important winter jobs that I need to do.  I know that I am going to have to be organised to garden in this method, as there is often only one sometimes two days a month suited for certain tasks.  I am hoping that this focus will mean that my garden is actually better looked after, as often I start in the Spring with great intentions but come the Summer the garden is looking very overgrown and neglected.

  1. Good idea, getting a head start on the year :) Browsing seed brochures here at the moment, hope to avoid the F1s this year and do some serious seed saving! I like the idea of having specific days to do specific tasks, so may have to look into biodynamic gardening, thanks for posting about it x

  2. I'm hoping to be more focused on the garden this year, too. The biodynamic stuff looks very interesting.
