So I attempted a blog a few weeks ago and after writing it and losing it twice: I gave up. Here I go again (for the 3 people who might read it). The first thing I think when I hear "blog"...someone needed somewhere to vent or tell people their opinion...etc. I don't want to do that. If you want information and knowledge you should seek it out for yourself. Please don't read anything I write and take it too much to heart. It will all be suggestions or things that I am personally excited about.
Because I scaled back on my work life I have had much more time to read. Most recently I have started receiving Mother Earth News magazine. I have been getting online newsletters for some time but call me old fashioned...I really have a love of holding a physical book. The magazine is great in my opinion. I often read the Farm Journal and other ag magazines. Most of them seem to lean pretty heavily in one direction...GMO, organic, big business, family farm. Based on the name, Mother Earth News, I know what you are probably thinking. However, I found a few refreshing nuggets within. First, an article about recycling...recycling plastic is not worth it. Definitely the first time I've heard that. Second, not all varieties are created equal AND that means some heirlooms are not that great when it comes to nutrients. Plant breeders may know what they are doing after all. A few more things I found to keep me going...
-Bull's Blood (beet) is recommended due to its long storage life-also happens to be one that we chose for your share
-A few super nutritious produce varieties...Spanish Roja (garlic) and Jersey Knight (asparagus) are also varieties that we are growing this year...
Stay posted for more of rambling...
