This garden is part of our permaculture zone 3: farm zone. In this patch amongst the Potatoes we planted Yacon, QLD Arrowroot, Cassava, Brazilian Spinach, Turmeric, Galangal, Rosella, Okra, Pepino and also companion perennial herbs such as Society Garlic, Sacred Basil, Pineapple Sage. Now that the potatoes are coming out, I've plantedWatermelon - another of our kids' favourites.
Thanks to Columbian WWOOFer, Alejandro, for creating this garden in August and planting the potatoes.
|Opening the soil with a garden fork, but not turning.|
|You can see the amount of openness that can be created just with the fork. The potatoes were so easy to dig out with my hands and I found so many worms.|
|Before making the garden beds, we let the chooks in for a while.|
