"A number of years ago I asked farmers what is it that attracts them to farming, because agriculture is a difficult profession. It's long hours, hard work, and almost universally - what attracts people to farming is the desire to have a connection to #life and living processes. They enjoy watching seeds germinate in the spring, or watching the joy of a newborn animal. There is that infectious #joy that is expressed in many #LivingSystems that is very, very powerful." 🙏 ♻️ 🌱 🌲 🌳 🌻 🌿🍂🍃 🍄 -John Kempf
Kempf speaking on how inferior bottled nutrients/chemicals are compared to organic practices when it comes to pests & diseases. Such a G.

These were put out in the beginning of July - My biggest weakness as an outdoor grower so far has definitely been planting on time. Last year it was August, this year it was July, so maybe next year I'll get it right and plant in early June like I'm supposed to 😂

Plots will be prepped this fall with cover crops along with some new Hugelkultur beds, so that should make next spring a lot easier! I've learned that planning is key to success in agriculture 🔑 🔓
Swazi x Aruba landrace dippin her feet into the 2nd cycle of this no till container. As time goes on, the biology in here will build, the soil food web will begin to thrive, and plant health will only continue to level up ⤴⤴️⤴️👌 🌱 🍄 🌟
Growing plants in a humus-rich, balanced soil (with all micro and macronutrients) is the only way to lose the headaches associated with pests & diseases. Believe it or not, most of the plants in this swamp are being attacked right now by a host of villains - caterpillars, slugs, leaf hoppers, etc. Why are they leaving my plants alone then? 🐛 🐛 🐛 🐛 🐛 🐌 🐌 🐌 🐌 🐌 🐾 🐾 🐾 🐾 Well, if a plant is at #PeakHealth️ it will vibrate at a given composite frequency. If there happens to be a mineral deficiency, it will vibrate at a slightly different composite frequency 🌱 📡 If there is a serious deficiency or several deficiencies that make that plant unfit for animal/human consumption, it will vibrate at a significantly different frequency that the insects know as food, hence an insect infestation. What this means is - healthy plants are literally #invisible to pests & insects!

The #comfrey I planted keeps getting crowded from the grass, so every time I visit I'll just stomp down around the base of these to tame it back a little bit. I don't want to cut it back completely, since this is in undisturbed native soil. The #endomycorrhizae found in #grasslands like these is very productive for farming, so killing the nearby rhizospere would be counterproductive 👎
