Agriculture is a leading cause of climate change and the carbon impacts from organic and regenerative practices not only reduce carbon impact but can even reverse it! Learn more from @rodaleinstitute and consider joining me in supporting them this giving season!

People continue to ask us..how do you determine

People continue to ask us..how do you determine "good" compost from "bad"?⁣⁣
⁣⁣
very good question. 🧐⁣⁣
⁣⁣
understanding this truly is critical to avoid harming your soil. how should you go about determining good from bad? ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
the first thing (🤓 let’s get into it!) is to understand the feedstock of the compost. that will ultimately determine it's major nutrient profile. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
composted manure vs composted yard waste are two completely different products that should not be treated the same. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
also, be sure the feedstock is not a potential source of toxins - herbicide residual can essentially render the product biological useless and act as a perpetual antibiotic to your soil. not good. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
next, it's important to know the water source used to create the compost. in the west, water often has high alkalinity or high salts that adsorb to the compost and change the nutrient profile dramatically and negatively. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
if it passes those tests, get it actually tested! the biggest red flags are high sodium or super high potassium. high potassium or sodium will throw your soil out of whack very quickly. in fact, if the saturation of na + k goes over 10% in your soil, you can pretty much expect a manganese deficiency. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
finally, one of the biggest benefits of compost is likely the biology! compost acts as an incredible inoculant - bringing in loads of bacteria, fungi, protozoa, and archaea. if you want to get really nerdy, use a microscope or have your compost checked for it's biological characteristics. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
hint: fungal compost is usually way more valuable for your soil. but making it takes patience and diligence. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
feedstock + water + nutrition + biology = good compost vs bad⁣

Do you want to hear something marvelously crazy and beautiful?  The previous owner of our house was a gardener.  The house was sitting vacant for about 20 years before we bought it but I could tell the person was a gardener.  There were overgrown nonproductive mulberry trees in the back yard.  There was a small fenced in area in the back that appeared to be an abandoned garden too.  But nothing but “weeds” were producing.  Since we’ve been practicing regenerative agriculture -no tilling, no synthetic fertilizers, feeding the soil, feeding the microbes- the land is coming back to life.  The previous owner’s mulberry bushes are producing now, tulips have popped up in the back yard, their walking Egyptian onions have sprouted.  I even found salsify in the front yard.  Today I noticed what I THOUGHT were Chinese Lanterns growing in our front yard food/medicinal garden.  Guess what.  They’re ground cherries!! Amazing!!! THAT’s why that rabbit that kept coming to our garden never ate anything I planted.  It just stayed near the area where the ground cherries were growing. 💕💕💕 “Anything dead coming back to life hurts,” Toni Morrison * I just found out groundcherries ARE a type of Chinese Lantern.  I’m happy nonetheless.

Winter means conference time and networking! Last week I was fortunate to attend the @acresusa Eco Ag conference, representing my day job @cwrufarm. It was 4 days of intense soil biology, compost and regenerative ag knowledge being shared from leaders all over the country. .
.
Quite honestly, the whole experience was eye opening to this small farm lady. It was humbling and challenging at times, being in the minority, as a woman in attendance. I was incredibly encouraged though that I could follow along with the content, thanks to all I’ve learned in the last three seasons farming. It’s amazing how much you can grow in a short time. It can be painful, uncomfortable and exhausting but our potential is limitless 🌱 .

Is chocolate worth dealing with irritating, biting flies, aka no-see-ems?
The chocolate midge is the only pollinator of the cacao plant, it unfortunately has that other habit... practicing invisibility and biting humans to within inches of psychological breaks...
So again I ask, is chocolate worth it?

I’m brewing a batch of pineapple and homegrown turmeric Jun Tea.  When I first started making Jun, I was so excited that I kept making it over and over.  Lol.  Now I think the excitement is waning.  BUT I put my extra scobies in my garden and I feed my houseplants with jun tea scobies + molasses.  So that’s pretty exciting. #feedthemicrobes #fermentedtea  #fermentedcocktails #juntea #kombucha #kombuchabrewing #junteabrew #probioticfarming #probioticagriculture #regenerativeagriculture #regenerativefarming #garyindiana #urbanfarming #urbangardening #growfoodnotlawns #growfoodnotlawn #paradisegardens #paradisegarden #permaculture #permaculturedesign

After too many farm years of only planting one cycle ahead, I just finished plotting out my first new orchard. Spots are being prepped on an offset grid pattern w/ hardwood mulch and comfrey. M-111 rootstock going in later this winter, that will be bark grafted in a couple more years w/ scion wood from the 40+ year old heirloom orchard on property. After each tree gets a sturdy cage, this orchard will be rotationally grazed w/ cattle and laying hens.  #getperennial #regenerativeagriculture #perennialagriculture #heirloomapples #silvopasture #ecofarm #permaculturedesign #radicalpeasant
