May is planting and sowing time. First we mulched the vegetable garden up to 20 cm with straw. 20 cm is needed if you want to cultivate without irrigation, or with very little irrigation when the soil is still awakening.
The second step was making rows, so we could plant and sow the vegetables.
We grew our own tomato and pepper plants from seeds, bought a few celery plants and sweet potatoes from our friends from Biosegura and sowed a lot of uncommon things like turnip greens and daikon but also red beets, zucchini, melons, cabbages, ... directly into the soil.
