Morning sunshine

I just wanted to share with you all to images I took from one of the back bedroom this morning showing the beautiful and warm sunshine we are experiencing at La Pasera after the much needed rain we have had over the past few days. This soft and plentiful rain will soften the soil before we start digging the empty areas within the vegetable plot that will be sown with oats, our preferred green manure. Oats as green manure sends roots deep into the soil helping to improve its structure, suppresses weeds during the Winter months and will return nitrogen into the soil when in the early Spring it gets dug back in the soil.
