What is happening in the garden…
Calendula, borage and radish flower are feeding the bees through the gardens, with the extended family of blue wrens dashing around the plants and dipping into the water feature for a drink and a bath. Deciduous fruit trees and rose bushes have dropped their leaves and dead wood will be pruned back with Biodynamic tree paste applied to their trunks.
Asparagus ferns have browned off and will be chopped off at ground level, compost to be applied and beds mulched ready for production in December. Strawberries have extended their runners and their new extensions have taken root, so time to dig up and transplant for sweet summer treats. Perennial globe artichokes are also multiplying from their trunks and are carefully dug up, divided and transplanted for their beautiful grey foliage and delicious flowers.
More yummy broad beans to be planted along with radish, salad leaf and celery with the waxing and ascending Moon.
It is a good time to apply horn manure, make compost, transplant seedlings, pruning, wine racking and harvesting for storage from the 6th-18th of June. This is a descending or waning period and is influenced by the earth and water signs. From the 1st-5th and the 21st-30th of June it will be a good time to apply horn silica, plant seeds, graft and harvest for early consumption. This is an ascending or waxing period and is influenced by air or fire signs.
WE ARE CURRENTLY HARVESTING… capsicum, kohl rabi, kale rocket, beetroot, swiss chard, salad greens, radish, spring onion, herbs, edible flowers.
If anyone has any queries in regards to the garden, please feel welcome to ask… Cheers, Jaimie
