Very curcuminic!

No secret Dianne. Happenstance that I planted the rhizomes in November 2017 and they spent 8 months in the ground, longer than when I usually plant in early spring and harvest at summer's end. Wicking bed helps but I am stunned by the bounty.

Wow, what a wonderful bounty. Enough to keep you in Turmeric for the year until your next harvest. What is your secret Elaine?

Vetiver grass helps to stabilise soil and protects it against erosion.  It can protect against pests and weeds. Vetiver is also used as animal feed. (Wiki.)
