  • Everyone is talking about what a terrible season it has been for vegetable farming.
    My garden is growing weeds while the onions rot and the tomatoes languish on the vine. The rain has made for soggy ground that starves annual plants of oxygen.

    The rest is lies in our cultural practices.
