|Herb and flower gardens at the end of June.|
I am an organic gardener, and I have been building our soil with compost and green manure for many years. This year I have been planting my seeds and doing my transplanting diligently according to a biodynamic calendar. I used a calendar last summer, but I wasn't consistent. This year, as an experiment, I decided to follow the biodynamic recommendations as much as practicality allowed. I'll admit some scepticism but I'll have to say that my garden appears to be doing exceptionally well.

|One cucumber plant which has produced |
dozens of large burpless cukes.
|I've started turning under the Crimson Clover |
which has been growing in this bed so it can
decompose as a green manure. It will be my winter
bed under a hoop house. I left the volunteer
zinnia and will plant around it. :)

a couple seasons ago.
|The bees are loving my dwarf crepe myrtle |
which is blooming it's heart out this
year and has such a sweet scent.
