About My Vegetables
While I'm not certified organic I do raise all my crops and animals with an organic ethos. My goal is to produce nourishing, delicious, naturally grown foods. Many of the seeds I plant are certified organic and they're grown here without the use of herbicides, pesticides or chemical fertilizers.
You may not think about herbicides and pesticides when you buy your produce because you can't see it and there aren't warning labels. "But I wash my vegetables", you say. You should wash them, unfortunately, many chemicals are sprayed directly on the plants and also remain in the soil where they're absorbed right into the very meat of vegetables - that can't be washed away. Why not start out simple and wholesome by growing your food naturally? Besides, by using a natural farming method you know the foods are more delicious and have that distinct flavor that you just can't get with 'trucked-in' veggies.
Since I don't plant acres of vegetables I can get right in the garden to care for the plants by hand. This also allows me to grow more unusual garden goodies - I love to grow new things that I've never eaten before. Below you'll see descriptions of some of my more interesting garden projects, I'm looking forward to tasting these... aren't you?
