Hi .. still taking a break from blogging. But, watching the busy insect activity in the yard and the beautiful blossoms & leaves unfurling from the once bare trees .. I just want to share these magnificent videos with you.
If you haven’t already seen them .. then you are in for a treat.
Number one is: Queen of the Sun: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ekoeQodrVoM
Number two is: The D.I.R.T. on Farmer John: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uhMWz1QWQ0g
It just takes the power of one .. of us .. at a time .. to do our part to stop the pesticides, nurture the earth and all the living insects and animals (including us).
Grow the healthy, natural way. Throw away the artificial fertilizers .. use the effective microorganisms, the compost teas .. research the information.
Here is a good site to start, to find out about good ways to improve your garden soil: http://www.gardenerspantry.ca/
And there are a lot of compost tea maker sites. Each one has some excellent information (although I think that the Bruce Deuley site is the best .. down below)
