Spring has arrived in Southern Sweden, and I have started this years growing by drilling holes and filling them with the organic kitchen waste, that I have kept in plastic bags during the winter. I drill a couple of holes every day. Since the plastic bags have been kept well closed, no nutrience has disappeared into the air meanwhile. You can read more about how I “drill down” organic material into the soil, at last years (2003) growing diary. In Sweden we call it “jordisering”, which would be best translated as “soilization” or nutrient pillar. These nutrient pillars are also water-keeping and give away the nutrience during a long time. Soon I will start building a new pumpkin-greenhous, so I can start warming up the soil.
