Day 80 of 365 days in the community garden

Lupin seed germinating in our garden soil (amoung a few other weeds germinating too!). Sow lupin seeds now to cover any bare patches in your garden over winter - your soil will thank you. The lupin roots fix nitrogen into your soil. In late winter or early spring, before the lupins flower, dig the plants into the soil and allow six weeks or so for the organic matter to break down and become part of your soil. This is such a great way to keep your soil healthy and productive.

"I've noticed something about gardening. You set out to do one thing and pretty soon, you're doing something else, which leads to some other thing, and so on. By the end of the day, you look at the shovel stuck in the half dug rose bed and wonder what on earth you've been doing." Anne Raver
