Raised bed organic gardening

April 28 2005: Things are starting to happen throughout the gardens now. Comfrey, (used medicinally for wound healing) has a good head start on its neighbors in the "medicine garden". Comfrey also produces an abundant amount of nitrogen rich plant matter for the compost pile.

We are trying something new with our raspberry bed. We have been channeling water runoff into the bed from the uphill side. By creating a compost pile with some left over fencing, and placing it in the path of the water, we hope to provide a slow release source of nutrients to the raspberries.

organic gardening in April

This container garden was planted about two weeks ago. A blend of lettuce, spinach, radish and nasturtium should provide plenty of fresh organic spring mix salad for a couple of months. Bagged organic spring mix is currently retailing for about $15/lb. in our local market.
We have had great success with companion planting in our raised bed vegetable garden. Here we have planted broccoli, bok choy and alyssum seedlings as well as carrots from seed. We mulch most of our vegetables with seaweed. The seaweed is excellent for holding in moisture and provides essential trace minerals that plants need.

While we never harvest it, the "rock garden" is always in full bloom. Our gardens are visible from the house and it's nice to have objects of interest year round.
