Somayag 2017 - the Garden

Aaron Kidd from Australia shares:      "We planted a larger vegetable garden 3 months prior to the Somayag.
The cherry tomatoes self-plant if they are in a happy environment, where they feel good.      Here they come every year without necessity to plant them. We have a great variety of vegetables and herbs like coriander, which is inter-planted with small eggplants, then Indian gilka (silk squash), bitter gourd, beet roots, a bigger eggplant variety, tomatoes, capsicum, spinach, cabbage, kale, cauliflower, broccoli, various varieties of salad greens, carrots, onions, garlic, beans, celery, cucumbers and some Asian vegetables too, then amaranth, parsley, basil, fenugreek, etc.
        Cauliflower is usually very susceptible to pests and actually difficult to grow organically. We had a great result this year, not only had we big heads of 3 kilos (without the outside leaves), but is has also grown very quickly. It took about 2 and a half month from the time the seedlings were planted.
        It is an amazing garden, everything is so healthy, no pests, no diseases, everything is balanced and with great taste and flavor. We see a great result and it is a good advertising for Homa gardening."

Aaron Kidd continued:
       "We are picking a full bucket of tomatoes every day, sometimes every 2nd day and that since 2 and a half month. And you can see tomatoes are everywhere in all different stages. It is a lot of tomatoes for a fairly small patch of land. That is another great result.
       We are happy that everyone attending the Somayag can eat organically grown Homa vegetables. Instrumental for this have been Bharat, the Tapovan gardener, and Prashant from the Goshala. They have done a lot and deserve all the credit. But it is also a result of 7 years of gardening, the Homa composting, vermiculture, the Homa farming methods of using Agnihtora ash and spraying Homa Biosol, which is showing its results in a rich, nutritious soil.
All these things have helped and we are harvesting the fruits thereof
