I have just been reading an article by Michael Pollan published in the New York Times Magazine in May 2013.  Its about the way modern microbiology is fast opening windows to a new world where billions of microbes play such a positive role in the health of plants and animals including ourselves.  This is a link to the article. http://www.nytimes.com/2013/05/19/magazine/say-hello-to-the-100-trillion-bacteria-that-make-up-your-microbiome.html?_r=0

Say Hello to the 100 Trillion Bacteria That Make Up Your Microbiome - The New York Times

August 2015.....This surface mounted hatch is simple to make and gives excellent access to Ecobed 1.  It will be trialled for a few months before making any more, but so far its performed better than the hatch mounted at the end of the bed.  http://jas49580.blogspot.com.au/

This hatch is surface mounted using four H.D gal coach screws.

July 2015.....Peas and beans being grown in Ecobins.  Its mid winter and they are coming along well.  In 6 weeks it will be spring and they should be ready for harvest.  http://jas49580.blogspot.com.au/2015/07/its-time-to-harvest-green-manure-as.html

My first Ecobed built in May 2012.  This pin advises an address change for my main blog Garden Ecobeds. http://jashxxxxxx.blogspot.com.au/.

The benefits of sustainable backyard wicking worm beds, and a description of how to build and maintain one.

September 2015.....This is Romanesco Broccoli.  Its beautiful to look at and great to eat.  I grew 3 of them this year, and they took up quite a lot of the space in Ecobed 3.  They were worth it..... http://joharthash.blogspot.com.au/

September 2015......Ecobed 4 is growing peas and beans.  They are in flower and setting seed pods after growing steadily through our mild winter.  They came into flower at just the right time. http://joharthash.blogspot.com.au/p/growing-peas.html

September 2015.....  We are harvesting silverbeet leaves and lettuce heads from Ecobed 1 and soon we will have baby beet and carrots.  The onions, garlic and leeks have had blackfly on them, but spraying with Eco neem oil seems to be controlling them.

August 2015.....Its spring next week and my peas are in flower.  They love this sheltered spot and have always grown well in Ecobins.  There are 12 pea plants in each bin, which I thought was pushing it a bit, but they all seem to be quite healthy and growing strongly.  They do get some help from that gas water heater, it not only keeps them warm, but it feeds them with CO2.  http://joharthash.blogspot.com.au/

July 2015.....These potato tubers are being chitted in my small lean-to greenhouse.  They are starting to shoot and should be ready for planting in a few weeks.   http://joharthash.blogspot.com.au/2015/08/home-page.html
