Hi Tracey, and everybody,
I am very interested to hear from anybody who has used this method of infusing the seeds with their energy.
I made an abortive attempt at this a few years ago, but fate intervenced, and it came to nothing.
I am now ready to make a fresh start... i have selected which plants to grow this way, testing intuitively, asking my deeper intuition for help in selecting the exact perfect varieties for me. I am ordering the seeds tomorrow, from the seed co-op, and this coming summer I will be doing it, using my full range of skills as an orgainic gardener with forty years gardening experience.
I will post progress reports on this site.
Today, i began clearing the ground. I have a raised-bed garden that measures 10 metres by 5 metres, it's been overgrown with weeds for some time, so there is a lot of hard work to get it ready. some of it wil be no-dig, and some will be dug. The above-ground crops will be no-dig and the root crops will be dug.
There is a major problem with kikuyu grass, that horrible grass-weed that spreads everywhere here in this area of NZ. I will cut this down to ground level, and then use biodynamic peppering to get rid of it longer term.
I am growing only old heritage varieties (NO morern hybrids), as these have higher nutrient value.
As well as using the "Anastasia method" (as per pages 77 to 80 of book one), i am also growing using a technique known as Biointensive Growing (look it up on the internet), and also "nutrient-dense" techniques (look this up also).
This iwll be the most awesome garden ever, I can FEEL it, i am so EXCITED about this.... it is the culmination of forty years of hard work.
These plants really will heal me of all ailments, body, mind and spirit.
Thank-you, Anastasia and Vladimir!!! :)
Much love to you all,
