The Organic Garden

At last the soil has dried out sufficiently for us to put a couple of mules into the orchards to turn over the soil. Francisco is one of the few young muleteers still working in the sierra. The soil will be allowed to lie roots to the sun for a few days, then we will start to rotovate to obtain a fine tilth, and start planting the potatoes.

Seedlings of tomatoes, aubergines, courgettes, garlic, onions and peppers are growing in the greenhouse and will be planted out before the end of April.
