One Garden At A Time

Think that "going green" is revolutionary?  Did you know there was a time, not so long ago, when all farming and gardening was done organically?

Gradually, chemical fertilizers became the accepted way of farming and gardening.  It was quick and easy.  And, once upon a time, cheap.

The fact is, chemical fertilizer exhausts the soil, destroys the microbes, depletes the micro-nutrients, and diminishes the "tilth".  The result?  Dead soil.

And now, with the new "peak oil" reality, chemical fertilizers are no longer cheap.  Isn't it time to stop the madness? Isn't it time to change the same-old-ways of doing things?  Isn't it time to get "back to the future"?

Imagine, as you're gardening, using organic methods and applying organic fertilizers like compost, manures, and worm castings, what is actually happening.  You're replenishing the soil, restoring the microbes, returning the micro-nutrients, increasing the "tilth", and, yes,...... saving the planet.

So go ahead, be a revolutionary. "Go green"!
