Indigo Evening Update

July 20, 2010

The little indigo starts that we planted have made themselves completely at home on the mountain farm. Its just been a couple of months now, and the plants are bushy, leafy, and creating the perfect biomass for our natural dye purposes.  Our row is surrounded by calendula, camomile, and poppies–all of which support water retention in the soil, and invite in pollinators by the droves.  I visit the indigo in the evenings, after work, to tend, water, and appreciate its beauty.  Last night was particularly serene, and the plants had just taken a big growth spurt–a good time to send you all a picture of progress.
