Spinach in Cloches. I was so happy to be able to harvest nearly 1 1/2 pounds of fresh spinach from the garden yesterday.

Spinach in Cloches

My first attempt at trying to get spinach going for fall and winter harvests was a complete and total failure. I had set out 18 spinach starts back on October 6, already a late start, and then left for a week long vacation. When I got back I found not a trace of a single spinach plant remaining. No doubt the seemingly thousands of sowbugs that inhabit my garden found the tender young seedlings and if it wasn't them then the birds probably found a way into the not so secure mesh tunnel. Bummer. Look at how tiny the seedlings were. The cloches provided some frost protection not long after the seedlings got set out and on a number of nights since. It's going to be interesting to see how soon I'll be able to harvest again.

Då behövs yta. Mandala Garden. Synergistic Growing. Some years ago, tired of the endless routines of digging, fertilizing and weeding (which I think is useless at the beginning of the season) I began to read about Natural Agriculture. Very different to the usual, scientific approach to agriculture, this reform was pioneered by Masanobu Fukuoka (The One Straw Revolution, and The Natural Way of Farming). Fukuoka proves that you can achieve good yields when leaving the soil undisturbed, active in its own dynamic and wild state.

I began to understand about soil. Then I was left with lots of questions, the most persistent was: Could I improve these techniques in the UK’s temperate climate? This question led me to discover Synergistic Agriculture. Growing Food is Like Printing Your Own Money. Join Ron as he embarks on his next project: igniting a (horti)cultural revolution!
