We planted our 1st trees.



It was both our birthdays this week, and we celebrated them by planting our first trees. We bought and planted; Valencia, Blood Orange, Mangosteen, Macadamia, and Avocado. We did a few things to improve the chances of the trees growing into strong and healthy trees. Firstly, we dug a hole of about 1 meter deep. Next, we added a mixture of charcoal, sand, and our kitchen compost. Another magical component we added was lactobacillus soil bacteria. Then we placed a medium-sized rock right underneath the roots of the tree. It will help the roots spread out better as the tree is growing. Lastly, we filled the hole with the rest of the compost mixture and mulched it with woodchips. We are excited to see the growth next year!
