Plan the garden year with foresight

13/11/2017 Plan the garden year with foresight

Lovingly processed garden treasures and storage as in grandmother's times enjoy great popularity. Well tried vegetable and fruit varieties are in demand again.

Up until recently it was downright chic to be able to buy all fruits and vegetables at any time of the year, no matter how high the price or from what part of the world. Global trade makes it possible. Gourmet chefs had raised it to a trend. Now, this fad seems to be reversing. Now, what‘s new and modern is what sounds seasonal and local.

Stockpiling in winter is ”in“

Recently, something very decisive has changed with garden lovers. Long transport routes and months-long cold storage with the associated loss of life and plant ingredients are frowned upon. What‘s in demand is garden freshness. The lost aspect of meaningful stockpiling is again an issue. The trailblazers are again the gourmet cooks, who bring special culinary delights from grandma‘s garden and kitchen from the archives into the public domain. One thinks again of the good things of the ”good old days“ - because seeds from genetically engineered plants and hybrid breeds are unsuitable for later generations. Old types of fruit and vegetables are already missing from the usual range and fall into oblivion. There is increasing recognition that these industrial methods are very short-sighted. Classic varieties of fruit and vegetables are now experiencing a renaissance. They are especially suitable for producing your own seeds and promise exciting variety in one‘s diet. So, many fruit and vegetable lovers have reclaimed these rarities, either in protest or for the joy of doing it.

”The one who has vision knows how to steer things“

This subtitle is a quote from the Franciscan, Peter Amendt. In the long run, gardening without chemicals and in harmony with natural cycles makes absolute sense and motivates you to do a good deed for empty soil through low soil cultivation and humus-promoting methods. Multikraft microorganisms and biochar make work in organic farming safer. Multikraft products ensure resilient and stable plants and improve shelf life. Many vegetables remain in the ground and defy the frosty temperatures on the bed due to the warming work of the Multikraft microorganisms. So you can harvest from the garden directly to the table - even in winter. All life-building phytochemicals are preserved. Preservation methods such as gentle drying below 40° Celsius or fruit and vegetables pickled and lactofermented using Multikraft technology enhance the repertoire. The personal benefit of this process of rethinking is as follows: by eating our own harvest, we have first-hand experience of increased health and vitality.

Planning is part of the ongoing harvest: harvested bedding rows should be rearranged after the spring and summer harvest so that the topsoil is always covered with greenery. In the case of crop management with
Multikraft technology, complicated crop rotation is unnecessary because the Multikraft microorganisms in the soil convert root-hostile excretions from previous cultures into life-building dominance. They rapidly prepare the nutrient supply from organic fertilisers for plants (Bokashi plus biochar, vegetable fumigations) and ensure continued fertility. How easy it is, even in the small environment of a garden, to ensure that the soil recovers. That means foresight, even in our immediate vicinity.

Practical tip:
Fruits and vegetables pickled with Effective Microorganisms in lactic acid extend the repertoire of conservation methods.
