December Garden Tip

December Garden Tip

All those leaves in your yard are garden gold. If you haven’t already started your compost piles, now is the time to do it. We mix biodynamic formulas and add it to a small amount of the compost before adding the mixture to the pile. This helps to quickly decompose raw organic matter and wastes by breaking them down into simpler compounds.

Winter is a great time to take care of your garden tools. We sand and linseed oil the tools to preserve and prepare them for the upcoming season. This is also a wonderful time to meditate on the previous growing season and plan for the plethora of vegetables that you want to grow next year.

May your holidays be filled with joy!
