  • If you are a regular reader of my column you likely know that I much prefer an organic approach to farm and gardening and that I believe that building healthy soil produces healthy food.  
    As I continue to learn more about pest control and fertility, the more I have come to understand why healthy plants and animals have an edge over their synthetically doped counterparts.
    The other day I needed to do some fertilization in the vegetable patch so I gathered up some supplies that included bags of alfalfa meal, bone meal and cottonseed meal.  

  • Last weekend my family went to Cumberland Falls State Park for a short camping trip.
