Lotus Garden Newsletter for Homesteaders. 24th February 2021

in Natural Medicine3 months ago

As we near the end of February a new season approaches. As gardeners, how much more do you think your life is affected by the seasons than most? I've certainly been more aware of them since I started gardening in earnest. This week we have some fantastic gardening tips for you.


Things happening in the community.

Check out @pennsif's sustainability curation digest for more great posts on sustainability.


As usual, there is lots happening in the @naturalmedicine community. There are a few more days to get entries in for the love challenge, which ends on 28th of February. If you're unsure of what to write in a Natural Medicine blog post, the curators have given lots of ideas to get you started, because natural medicine is a broader topic than you might think.


Some highlights of the week

With the @ecotrain question of the week being to share your gardening tips, there has been a wonderful selection of posts doing just that! Two of them I just had to share, with this first one coming from @farm-mom which includes tips on soil and pest control.


These next gardening tips from @thebigsweed are all about compost and mulch, their importance in the garden and how to best prepare them.

Over the months we've been sharing the occasional progress posts from @paradoxtma's rocket stove build. This week is all about structural detail and shows us how to repair cracks in clay, why they occur and how to try and prevent them in the first place.

Usually I like to finish with a recipe, but there were so many great posts to choose from and this one from @denmarkguy is a great one about the importance of managing and preserving harvests.

Each week one of our featured authors will be selected to be a 5% beneficiary of The Lotus Garden newsletter. This week @paradoxtma will receive this award.

Thank you for stopping by. This week's newsletter was brought to you by @minismallholding.

I haven't had time! It's been all go in the outernet, lately, so I've barely kept up with my commitments here.

Thanks to this great community, there is always something new I learn.
That's the beauty of sharing, no matter how long you have been doing something there is always more to learn.

Thanks, it's exciting being included in this week's newsletter.
I appreciate all of your support!

Congrats to all the featured content creators. I do love a good rocket stove. I have a factory made one back in the USA that I do my stir-frying on anytime I'm back for a short visit. If I ever have some land, I'd love to build an in-house rocket stove one day.
