Remember the ginger farm?
Michael advised us to mound the soil up and improve it. This patch had just been closed off from the chickens, so they've been busy fertilising it as well. Then I cut and planted to ginger and we are looking forward to the green shoots popping up. Michael says one of the best parts of growing ginger is to walk down the rows and smell the lemon scent of the leaves. Can't wait.
You can see in the patch next door that the corn is coming along. Unfortunately, a few of the larger stalks were blown over on Thursday when we had massive winds come through. I've propped them back up and given them a nice, deep water, so we'll see how we go.
