Here's the COMFREY vat - disgusting or beautiful? . . I don't always chop it up, I'm "double busy" so that's wasting my valuable time 😂 Seems to rot down at the same speed anyway whole, plus it's easier to keep submerged. . . . Comfrey is rich in potassium (K), which is required for fruit production increasing both yield and flavour, and also contains phosphorus (P) and nitrogen (N). As mentioned in an earlier post, liquid comfrey fertilizer has a higher NPK ratio than horse muck. Comfrey is also one of the few plants that contains vitamin B12 & a decent amount of calcium, so that's good eh? Plus all the micronutrients from a living plant that you don't always get in manufactured feed. . . . Nettles have more nitrogen but less potash (potassium), so you can use them to make a feed for leafy greens; or add some to your mixture for a balanced fertilizer. Basically, the three key nutrients can be seen to have these roles: potash = healthy growth & strong plant, nitrogen = green foliage, phosphorous= generally good healthy root system. . . . It's not just comfrey tea that's good - it can be used as a compost activator due to high nitrogen content and it can be chopped up and added to soil to over winter as a green manure or a mulch. I've even seen people dry them and add to soil as a powder. It's a fast grower once established, and can be invasive, so don't be afraid to cut it back pretty hard - it will rebound pretty flippin' quick. Comfrey deserves a place in any serious allotment garden, go get some - make a smelly goldmine like me!
Garbanzo beans (also known as chickpeas, Bengal grams, and Egyptian peas) have a delicious nutlike taste and buttery texture. They provide a concentrated source of protein that can be enjoyed year-round and are available either dried or canned. ⠀ My hubby added these chickpeas in our Masala curry tonight and it was amazing! ⠀ How do you eat your chickpeas? Comment below with some recipes, I’m open to trying anything!
[ hello #ginger / coming soon ] ✨ Qualche mese fa abbiamo abbiamo dato il via alla sperimentazione di nuove colture, tra cui l’amato #zenzero e... sembra che stia funzionando! Chi come noi, non può vivere senza alzi la mano! Fondamentale per me ogni mattina, e fantastico come rimedio naturale quando il raffreddore invade la casa! 🌈 Aspettiamo con pazienza e incrociamo le dita perché questo piccolo sogno si realizzi! Che sia una giornata super per tutti voi! . . . #ortoprimofiore#organicgarden | #madeintuscany ☀️
Her ligger jeg og fjerner ukrudt på et af vores bytte aftaler. Som man kan høre mellem mine banderier, så håber jeg at kødet vi bytter os til er godt. Regnvejr og en upraktisk byboer. 😳 Heldigvis havde vi smukke omgivelser og fuglefløjt.
