|Its late September and the weather is warming up. I have just removed a few spent brassicas, and I need to re-invigorate the soil ready for the next planting.|
The plant debris and remnant straw mulch has been removed and consigned to the compost heap, and a 60mm top dressing of home made compost applied to the soil. To give the microbes a boost, I have drenched the compost with diluted seaweed extract.
A generous layer of sugar cane straw is about to be applied to keep the compost moist and the worms and microbes busy. I will be planting lettuce, cabbage and turnips in about 3 weeks.
