Tips to reduce water requirements

We recommend mulching the beds
Experience has shown that by covering the ground, e.g. with Hay or straw, which can reduce evaporation by 80%. If you keep the beds evenly moist, an optimal moist microclimate will be created under the mulch. This not only promotes the growth of the plants, but also reduces water consumption enormously.

It is also recommended to always keep the beds moist , even if the bed is not used for a certain period of time
The drying out of the soil leads to a huge decline in the micro- and macro-organisms in the soil, which over time leads to an infertile soil . Tests have shown that the water content in the entire bed remains longer when the entire bed is watered over a longer period of time than when it is only watered selectively. Due to the small volume of the poured areas in contrast to the large dry volume, they dry out more quickly than if the entire volume of the bed is filled with moisture. Similar to heating in an apartment.

If the beds are not in use, we recommend sowing with green manure.

Maintaining an energy level always requires less energy than having to reach it again and again.

The Asian vegetable 'Mibuna' is a biennial cabbage plant from the Middle East, originally developed in the 19th century. Century in Mizuna. The hardy vegetables are also known as Japanese mustard cabbage and form a large number of elongated and narrow leaves. The rapidly regrowing leaves are mild and have an aromatic, slightly sweet taste, with a fine arugula aroma. The variety is high-yielding and can be harvested over a long period of time. Asian vegetables are consumed fresh or cooked.

General
Sown or sow in rows. Asian vegetables prefer a sunny to partially shaded location with permeable and nutrient-rich, humus-rich clay soil. Prepare the soil with deposited animal manure. Avoid waterlogging.

Additional tips
For a longer harvest period, the flower bases should be broken out and care should be taken not to damage the heart during harvest. Harvest the leaves from the outside in to keep growth stable. To prevent the laying of eggs from cabbage flies, we recommend the use of vegetable protection nets. In order to quickly obtain a fine, crumbly and well-drained soil, an additional incorporation of biochar and primeval rock flour is recommended.
