Today, we had a visit from Aaron from Harvest Farms. He brought us some beautiful red oak bark, casuarina and nettle leaves from his farm. We picked yarrow, chamomile flowers, and dandelion from our gardens, put the flowers to dry, and chopped the red oak bark to a fine crumb. All these ingredients are ready to be dried and stored to make biodynamic preparations.
We packed the nettle leaves into a terracotta pot, buried it in our garden to compost down for the season. The result will be a compost, rich in essential minerals for the soil.
