I had been inspired to initially write the post by a trip back to Connecticut to visit my mother last year. She has a nice size yard, just a little over 3 acres, and over the years has had some very nice gardens. Even back before it was popular, she was growing organic gardens, without the use of any fertilizers, pesticides, or chemicals, if anything at all she just amended the soil using compost. She did hire a professional from http://treesurgeonsnortheast.co.uk/ to help her take care of her gardens. Oh and not to mention the chickens that would peck through the dirt all day, fertilizing as they went along. While she does still grow some vegetables each year, many of the […]

Organic Deodorant

Wednesday, July 23rd, 2008

A CSA is basically where you pay a set amount to a local farm, and you then theoretically become a stake holder in the farm’s operations. In return you get a portion of the farm’s harvest each week or every two weeks. Here in San Diego I’m a member of Be Wise Ranch, and I pay $20 (updated 2008) $25 for a box of organic produce every two weeks. It’s the small box, but it’s plenty for me for actually more than the 2 weeks. The farm delivers to a pick up location each week, and it’s up to you to go retrieve your goodies. Each day of the week are different locations, so all of the country ends up getting a chance to have it delivered to their […]
