September arrives to announce the bellowing of the deer and mushrooms to the arcornocales forests of the Sierra de Grazalema. These two events are an important attraction to attract the attention of visitors to this area of Andalusia.
The deer bellow
The bellowing, is the period in which the male deer is in heat and emits a series of sounds to which the exciting antler fight to get a female joins, the males are hit with the horns trying to unbalance the opposite. When one of them succeeds, the defeated will withdraw immediately or restart the fight.
At the end of September with the first rains of autumn this fantastic spectacle begins, one of the most shocking that can be seen in the Sierra de Grazalema Natural Park in Cádiz.
The bellowing begins with the bellows and continues for several days with the battle in which their antlers collide until exhausted. The sound envelops the heart of the park and its echoes are heard in an environment of several kilometers, especially at dawn and also when the afternoon falls.
From Tambor del llano we have the privilege of hearing the sounds of the bellow.
This natural phenomenon lasts about a month, usually begins in September - according to the weather and lasts well into the month of October or November.
At the beginning of the year 2019 we started the adventure of organizing and planting the organic orchard of Tambor del Llano.
Our garden is organic because it is carried out a type of cultivation, which is based on respect for the natural processes of the food we sow. We plant the vegetables that are given in each season of the year, outdoors, without using artificial chemicals to increase the production and the size of the vegetables we grow. The land is fertilized with natural fertilizers, such as compost, manure or leaf soil, to give more fertility to the soil, and in this way our plants can grow strong and healthy.
The orchard occupies a large space on the south side of the pine forest near the building of the rural accommodation.
The system of plantation is of the deep bench, a method that has been used since ancient times, and that has reached our days for its good results because with the deep bench you can increase the yield up to 4 times more than with another type of terraces.
The key of the deep bench is that the earth is aerated, fluffy and fluffy, so the roots of the crops develop better, since they have more space and it is easier to capture nutrients and water. This will provide greater health and vigor to the crops, which translates into a better response to possible pests and diseases.
So far, in the garden we have planted:
All these vegetables will be harvested to offer a cuisine based on the quality and freshness of healthy and organically grown products in our own garden.
