|Peppermint seedling for spring planting into the forest garden|
I've been busy sprinkling seeds (harakeke and kowhai) and transplanting seedlings like cabbage trees (for shelter & shade, bees, birds and grass reduction) to mint (edible, & pests) and native broom (fixes nitrogen) in our new forest garden.
Our previous gardening mind set full of borders, straight lines and 'weeds' is fading, and we're entering a new way of thinking. With it is coming a more natural type of food production which works together with the soil, insects, bugs and birds. And a new love of all plants.
