Nurturing your organic crops: Mulching

How beaut is this onion? The work of my hands!

Add mulching to your growing crops.

Here, I used grass cuttings from grass that I know is grown organically.

Why Mulching?

✅helps retain water and thus, helps keep the roots moist.

✅ Keeps weeds away

✅ Prevents soil compaction

✅ Insulates the soil

✅As you water, the nutrients from the mulching are slowly released into the soil and roots and this helps your crops grow better.

✅It improves the soil’s fertility.

✅Prevents soil erosion.

I prefer grass cuttings or dry leaves that have fallen from trees.
