Planting our Organic Turmeric

Today we are planting our turmeric. First we have kept the planting material watered and in the shade. (Daytime temperatures of more than 45 degrees are common in May).

Now we are soaking the rhizomes in a mixture of our organic Biosol bio-enhancer together with ash from our Agnihotra Homa fires. Then we are planting them along the drip irrigation lines.
