A few weeks ago we told you how one True Botanica coworker was starting to prepare her garden. If you missed that post, you can get caught up to speed here. We promised to keep you posted on her progress, so here it is!
This year I decided to take on the project of trying to grow vegetables using biodynamic seeds in organic soil! Next year I will try and expand this by using biodynamic preparations in the dirt.
Because there was no good space for our garden, we decided to build a raised vegetable bed, concept, design and inspiration came from this article http://organicgardening.about.com/od/startinganorganicgarden/a/raisedbed.htm . We ended up using Cedar for the wood, and then gave it a food safe mineral oil wash to keep it looking good throughout the year. Along the way there were various points of excitement; the ground breaking, having to fill the bed with the dirt at 8pm at night (the dirt had mistakenly been delivered on the wrong day and left in the alley for us to move) and then finally seeing the raised bed finished and planted. Check out some pictures from start-finish of the project.
