@brienicole Disagreements is not proof of lack of education. Please list the studies indicating that nutrient value for organics is higher. Organic militants use straw men. This is not the 1930's when we poured tons of harsh poisons on strawberries. Most fertilizers & insecticides are safe. (I know because I investigated several for a particular pest.)

As a farmer friend said, "Why in the world would I feed my kids bad food?" Then again, he's too busy to lecture us on YouTube. LOL

@smb12321 I think you are highly misinformed and uneducated. The nutrient value is higher due to not only less travel time from point a to b but there is not GMOs or pesticides. I know I dont want to ingest that crap!

I grow organic but want to point out that there is not a scintilla of proof that organics are "healthier" than "regular" produce. Numerous tests have been conducted on the quality of produce and I have yet to find one with documented evidence that organic is better.

The only downside to organic is the lower yield. As one agronomist said, "If we were forced to use organic, we'd starve" LOL

@kentuckianagardener Wow they must be really generous. But did they hand it out because the wood was not great quality, had holes in it, or whatnot?

kentuckianagardener said...

@adamberk07 yeah usually they are soy based. Generally your ok to go with black and white and avoid colors.

kentuckianagardener said...

@Tsuguayme Yeah, its kind of normal around here to get free wood slabs at the mill. But cedar works great if you can get it, as it lasts several years.

Tsuguayme said...

@kentuckianagardener Free wood? OMG. Why were they handing out free wood? I want some :D

Tsuguayme said...

@adamberk07 I hear newspaper ink can be soy based but you should check with the newspaper company to find out. If it does have toxins, I think it may decompose over time.

adamberk07 said...

what about the toxins from the newspaper ink?

Watch a Pre-Januar­y 8th copy of Inception. Listen closely when the actors say imagine, reality, and safe, or point pistols. You'll hear the words, Loughner, offin' her, part of the word Giffords, and much more. Some say they hear, do it.

Im The Kentuckiana Gardener and we also enjoy growing organically. We started our low cost raised beds by going to a sawmill and getting free wood slabs. We also grew cold crops through the winter in our little hoop house.

There will be protests regarding genetic engineering/modification throughout the u.s. on 3/26/11.

Please see the "Rally for the Right to Know" facebook page, for more info.

Petitions can be signed at the "organicconsumers" website.

wooden stakes from a shop ?!

... go look in the woods for felled trees/ dropped branches ... saw em up to size ..free stakes !

easiest way is planting spuds through the grass,.. brakes up the soil --grass dies down because of no light cover , the following year ye good to go. soils will be nicely nicley.

or , if you have pigs ...


anyway , keep the weeds , there IS a reason they grow ..permaculture FTW.

just put organic mater or some mulch (approx 10-15cm thick) on the ground in the late autumn, then just wait for the spring to come when you need to sow your seeds. Make holes in the mulch or what's left of it then put the seeds ya want. wait for seedlings to come, then mulch again.. this way you dont need to dig the soil and to damage to its structure.
