Reacting to Rain

by | March 29, 2021 | Permayouth | 0 comments

If you’re in South East Queensland or Northern New South Wales, you would’ve been getting hefty amounts of rain. In my area we didn’t flood, but received plenty enough rain to soften up the ground for some serious gardening.

There have been heaps of mushrooms growing – this is a GREAT sign as it shows our mycellium is flourishing. There are so many awesome types of mushrooms that spring up after the rain. I love drawing and painting them…

After the soil has been softened by the rain, it’s prime time to fork the soil for aeration and set up some new no-dig gardens. The mycellium will love all the compost and added nutrients to the soil, and it’ll make your garden flourish.
