🌙 Sweetgrass "Hierochloe odorata" creating a bit of Autumn drama. 🌾🌻🍃
No-till drill VS broadcast seeding-
This field near the Washington-Canadian border that was otherwise unrentable. Summer irrigated, but no fertilizer, the soil to seed contact from no-till enabled the plants (Graza Radish, Choice Chicory, Tonic Plantain, and Red Clover) to better utilize the moisture, and the farm was able to graze this 3 times this summer.
We love organic September and seeing so many people getting involved. It really helps raise awareness which in turn, helps organic food become more available and affordable. It’s coming to an end now but change is happening 🙌🏻💚

Organic food is everyday food, put simply, it is food as it should be 🍇🥕🍎 It's available nationwide in over 8,000 supermarkets, independent shops, box schemes, cafes and restaurants 🍴 and it doesn’t always have to cost more...everyday items such as yoghurt, bread, pasta, tea and many seasonal vegetables are often the same price as non-organic 🥑🥛☕ which items do you opt for the organic option

This magical, marvelous food on our plate, this sustenance we absorb, has a story to tell. It has a journey /// I always learn so much from spending time on my grandparent’s farm. There’s something so simple and incredible about walking outside in your backyard, picking out your own dinner, and being a part of the patient process Mother Earth gifts us 🌍✨🌱

Vis giliau ir giliau pasineriu į veganiškos virtuvės subtilybes :) Visą savo vaikystę praleidusi kaime, tik dabar aiškiai suvokiu, kokia privilegijuota buvau! Galėčiau užmerktomis akimis atskirti organiškai užaugintų gėrybių skonį !Kai grįžtu į kaimą, mama sako, jog šiltnamį apsimoka vien dėl manęs laikyti. Atrodo, jog niekada tų gerių nebus per daug.
Gimus sūnui, prieš beveik aštuonetą metų, teko į mitybą pažvelgti dar giliau ir subtiliau. Pakeitus jo dietą į vegetarišką (beveik veganišką) pavyko išgydyti laaabai sunkios formos egzemą bei palaipsniui atsikratyti daugeljo alergijų. Nors dabar jo dieta toli gražu ne sveikuoliška, bet fundamentai pakloti neblogi :) Ir dabar, kai šioks toks žinių bagažas jau yra, norisi į jas įnikti dar giliau :)

For 30 years, environmental sustainability has been at the heart of Riverford’s ethos. Growing, packing and delivering your food ourselves puts us in a unique position to use as little packaging as possible (less than a quarter of the plastic packaging used by major UK supermarkets*), and to collect what we do use from your doorstep for reuse or recycling.
We only use packaging where it’s strictly necessary to protect fresh produce and prevent food waste. All that can be is packed into the veg boxes loose, and we’re always finding new ways to use less.

Small, and larger mammals (such as mice, and cats) can be a nightmare when it comes to growing vegetables.
There are numerous steps you can take to help deter mice from your growing space. Firstly, try to eliminate nesting possibilities. If you have a shed, close up all points of entry to prevent them from nesting inside. Mice can squeeze through tiny gaps (as small as 1–2 cm), so be thorough. Keep your plot clean and tidy to remove any potential nesting places or nesting materials (piles of wood, grass clippings, etc.). Avoid using deep and cosy mulches (such as straw, or any fluffy material). Read more on Medium.com - Search GROW Observatory Stories and see recent articles.
