After carefully re-arranging the photos in the Album, I see they are out of order. So here they are in a logical kind of order.
Two views of a citrus bed. First the Sweet Potatoes got out of hand and the citrus suffered then the self-sown cover crop (aka weeds) plus the cover crop I put in then the self-sown Tomato all got well out of hand.
Along the way I found some surprises ...
Pupa of the Orchard Swallowtail:
and larva of the Heliothis moth (it's got a new name these days but still eats as much of our food as it ever did):
Then there's the native orchid, Geodorum densiflorum which is supposed to be 'common' on the east coast. I've never seen it before and now it has graced our plot with its presence and we're stoked.
Pruned the Lemonade tree and the Common Lemon tree and painted them with Biodynamic Tree Paste:
And the bed now looks a little more under control. All the Comfrey leaves, the cover crops and the Tomato with tree prunings are lying on top ready to increase the organic matter in the soil.
