The organic garden of Tambor del Llano
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:
- Green and red chard
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.
